MyMachine DreamsDrop: 21 countries, co-creating across continents!

Creativity going global!

In January we launched our MyMachine DreamsDrop Campaign 2021 to Primary School Teachers around the globe. Students from 21 countries (Morocco, South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, India, Vietnam, Turkey, Armenia, Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Poland, Canada, Usa, Mexico, Ecuador, Bolivia) uploaded their dream machine!

We picked 39 ideas (from all continents) and connected these to university students at the School of Industrial Product Design at Howest University of Applied Sciences (Belgium), and the Design Faculty of Monterrey Tech University in Querétaro (Mexico).

These university students conceptualised the ideas, and delivered a proof-of-concept. The results are amazing!  Below you can find an overview, yet follow this link to browse all results!

Thank you so much to all students involved! And a big thank you to all educators around the world who participated with their class! Your students learned that having ideas is important, and what it takes to bring an idea to life: collaboration, respect for each other’s talents, persistence, and resilience. We hope they will continue to have a growth-mindset and the creative confidence that their ideas matter!
