"By engaging children’s imaginations and encouraging all members of the education community to share in their innocence, curiosity, and capacity to dream, MyMachine inspires a love of learning that will serve participants for life."

"Because the children really are the “bosses,” MyMachine can teach us a lot about how to foster student growth in disciplinary practices, problem-solving, social and emotional learning, and creativity."

“Wherever MyMachine chooses to go next, it is our hope that these three intangible outcomes—cultivating wonder, joy, and a sense of community—remain central to its mission.”

Magali Veramme (28),
Product Designer,
MyMachine Alumnus

“My current job as stage-designer for artists like Madonna, U2, Rolling Stones, feels like ‘MyMachine XL’. I’ve learned the skills I need for this creative job, when I was participating in MyMachine as product design student at HOWEST.”

Student Technical High School,
MyMachine Alumnus

“As a young woman, I'm unfortunately an exception at my school, pursuing technological education. What I've done in MyMachine truly interest me. The professors think it’s great that I was working on MyMachine, because the technical studies need a women’s touch.”

Jo Libeer
CEO Chamber Of Commerce Belgium

award-winning leader in education

“MyMachine is the best idea I’ve heard in the past 25 years. There’s only one thing I regret in my life: not being one of the founders of MyMachine”.

“Ultimately MyMachine provides a model of a creative process that achieves a wonderful balance of unleashing of imaginative and unique ideas within a structure that is supportive, open and flexible.”

Sérgio Gonçalves,
Professor at Caldas da Rainha College of Arts and Design

“In reality we, the adults participating in MyMachine, almost all being students, teachers, and professionals ended up being the true apprentices in this adventure. We learned, laughed, had fun and worked hard. The children have made possible this regain of sheer honesty, and made us all become a little bit of a better person.”
