On June 23 and 24, nine dream machines were on display in Technopolis, Mechelen. From the lubricating machine to the mental aid machine: each one sprung from the imagination of primary school students and was brought to life by college students and technical/vocational secondary students. By joining forces, they created the MyMachine Expo 2021-2022. Some eight hundred of students and stakeholders visited the exhibition!
The road to it was not always without obstacles: testing, trying out, embracing an unexpected reaction or turn of events. It is this growth mindset that we want to stimulate in all participants to be creative, persistent and resilient.
The results are impressive: all 9 dream machines were given a special place in Technopolis. Technopolis brings science and technology closer to children and students. They can discover the science and technology behind every day and trusted things, right alongside them.
Thank you so much to all participating students, educators, and supporting companies for being part of MyMachine this year. And many thanks to our dedicated team for their commitment and hard work to support and connect all these creatives and builders!
