January 19, 2023, was a fabulous milestone in our history! MyMachine Catalonia (Spain) hosted its very first exhibition! After many months of hard work, all participating students (primary, secondary and university level) gathered in Elisava, iVic-UCC Faculty of Design and Engineering in Barcelona. 175 child-inventors could finally discover and test the working prototype of their Dream Machine!
It is a blast to see Maquina Pastissos, Caixa Magica, Gel, and Conta-Contes in reality! These four different Dream Machines are presented as one product family, by using the same design framework. They look like four siblings but have different functionalities.
This exhibition is an important final step in the MyMachine methodology. Celebrating the result of many months of hard work is an attitude in MyMachine. Yet, while celebrating these working prototypes is so much fun, the most important thing in MyMachine is the journey. Learning that all ideas matter! Learning to dream big, and how you can bring those ideas to life! Learning to respect each other’s talents!
Thank you so much to all students and educators involved from Escola Goar, Escola GEM Mataró, Escola Paidos, Escola Petit Món-Felisa Bastida, Institut de Vic, and Elisava! And thank you so much to Raquel Fernández and Judith Cobos, and all the MyMachine Catalonia team at Fundacio Tr@ms!
