Things to consider

TechSpark Academy recruits EPFL and ETHZ students to teach and mentor students.

As such, we are able to organize in-school sessions in locations proximal to these two universities only.

Please note that we are not able to organize any events that clash with student exam periods:

  • EPFL: January to early February & mid-June to early July
  • ETHZ: Mid-December to mid-January & early/mid- to end August

We do, however, organize camps and weekend workshops across Switzerland, and, depending on the location, are able to source from both EPFL and/or ETHZ.

Work with us

TechSpark Academy is constantly looking for talented and dedicated instructors who enjoy teaching juniors (8-12) and teens (13-18) across Switzerland at our camp locations and after-school activities. Our 2019 camp locations and dates are indicated below. Please check the individual camp pages on our website to see which courses are given at each location.
