What a marvellous day this was! MyMachine Liège (Belgium) just finished their very first cycle, building 6 dream machines, uniting over 160 students from many different schools in Liège. While co-creating their dream machines, all these students learned the power of creative and entrepreneurship.
At the end of this cycle, the results -the original drawings, mock-ups and of course the working prototypes- are put on display at a grand exhibition.
MyMachine Liège invited all students to discover all dream machines. Surely the primary school children know their very own dream machine, but the exhibition gives them the opportunity to understand that they were not the only ones, that other classes from other cities joined as well.
In the evening, all stakeholders were invited to do just that. Government representatives, industry people and educators were invited to this wonderful event.
After the speeches of the Minister Frédéric Daerden, MyMachine Liège Coordinators Nathalie Duchateau and Benjamin Blaise, President of Basse-Meuse Développement Ernur Colak, and MyMachine Co-Founder Piet Grymonprez, all stakeholders where invited to discover the prototypes, demonstrated by the respective university students! We saw only proud faces, and heroic stories of laughter, and hard work.
Many congratulations to all students involved! They have learned that having ideas is important and fun, and how you can bring an(y) idea to life: by collaborating, respecting each other’s talents, and being persistent and resilient.
A big thank you to our team of MyMachine Liège, who collectively ran an amazing first cycle!
