"How to win Elon Musk's international design competition "Not-A-Boring-Competition"?" - Lecture on 03.05.

-this is the title of a lecture that Kilian Schmid will give next Tuesday (03.05.2022) at 5:30 p.m. as part of the digital VDI Tuesday Lectures of Faculty 03 of Mechanical, Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering at Munich University of Applied Sciences. Although Kilian Schmid is still studying at Munich University of Applied Sciences, he can already look back on a great success, winning the international tunnel construction competition "Not-A-Boring-Competition" in the USA from Elon Musk with the team TUM Boring. This is the follow-up event to the famous Hyperloop competitions, which attracted a lot of attention in Germany but also internationally - also because TUM emerged as the winner in each case. TUM was also the biggest player in the last competition. This success would not have been possible without Kilian Schmid and the numerous students from the Munich University of Applied Sciences who were active in leading positions and pushed the team forward. The SCE also supported the team. More info at https://www.boringcompany.com/

fIVE Female Entrepreneurship Podcast: in conversation with Lisa Ihde, computer science student, author & equal opportunity officer

In today's episode, we're pleased to welcome Lisa Ihde. Lisa is a computer science student, author, equal opportunity advocate, aspiring founder, part of the Forbes 30 Under 30, and much more. In this episode, Franziska Mattner talks to Lisa about her path to studying computer science, the (still) low percentage of women in this field of study, and how this can be increased. Lisa talks about how she was one of the few women to succeed in computer science despite various hurdles, and why female role models, networks and more visibility in particular can help others on their way, emphasizing how important it is to introduce children to computer science and technology in a playful way at a young age to encourage a natural approach in this field. Lisa shares valuable insights into her experiences as a book author of computer science books for kids and teens, her involvement with the Hasso Plattner Institute, and CreateF - The Female Founders Show.

fIVE Female Entrepreneurship Podcast: Talk with Talia Stroud

In this episode, we talk about a research-inspired topic: "how to design better digital spaces?" with Talia Stroud (professor and director of the Center for Media Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin). As many founders today are the designers, makers, and builders of those spaces, we would like to share the results of what Talia Stroud and her team found in the course of a two-year research project. As this podcast tries to encourage equity, equality, diversity, and democracy for the sake of all, the findings are an important consideration for all founders to think of when building their algorithms, platforms, digital communities, or spaces. We hope you get inspired with new food for thought and actions to follow.
