Book Launch in Portugal at FOLIO

Today we had the pleasure of launching our book What Is Your Dream Machine? How Children Change Education Worldwide in Portugal. We were honoured with the invitation of FOLIO, the International Literature Festival who hosted the event.

FOLIO invited Miguel Silvestre – CEO Technology Park Obidos (Portugal) to moderate the talk. Joining the panel was João Santos – Director ESAD (Portugal), Edgar Andrade – CEO Fablab Recife (Brazil) and Piet Grymonprez – Co-Founder MyMachine (Belgium).

Right after this event, the MyMachine Portugal Exhibition 2019 was opened by Ana Sofia Godinho – MyMachine Portugal Coordinator in collaboration with André Silva, Carlos Pepe and Cecilia Magalhães. The exhibition shows a selection of elaborated dream machines made by different schools from around the country. The exhibition remains on display during FOLIO, until 20th of October.

Thank you to all involved who have made this possible! We are extremely proud of the commitment, engagement, energy and impact the whole MyMachine Portugal is bringing.
