About Addictlab Academy

learning by labs / apprendre par laboratoires

Addictlab is an international creative think tank with a number of dedicated research labs such as the Chocolate Lab, Science Education Lab, Urban Green Lab, Design Lab … The Addictlab Academy selects activities from these labs for educational & corporate workshops for kids, adults and companies. We want participants to learn, experiment, improvise and collaborate. Addictlab supports the UN/ Sustainable Development Goals and develops own SDG impact kits.

The Addictlab Academy offers a unique educational experience that pushes cross-curricular learning. – Project based learning and cross disciplinary thinking is a transformational approach to education that places the learner at the center of an interdisciplinary experience leading them through a journey of discovery, inspiration and talent acceleration where they embrace success and failure, collective intelligence, and above all, have fun.
