MyMachine Norway invites you to their 2019 Exhibition opening on Tuesday March 19th in Kristiansand. This is the glorious moment where all students, teachers and professors from primary, secondary and higher education that were involved in MyMachine get together to discover all working prototypes.
Of course the students know the one they invented, conceptualised and build themselves. But at the exhibition they’re not just discovering their own working prototype to test, but also all the other ones from all other schools involved.
The opening event with all participating students starts at 9am and runs until 2pm. The exhibition will be on display from March 19th to March 30th at the Kristiansand Folkebibliotek.
Prior to that, starting at 8 o’clock, MyMachine Norway organises, in collaboration with the Norwegian Chamber of Commerce, “MyMachine – STE(A)M education for fremtidens ingeniører” or MyMachine – STE(A)M education for future engineers. This breakfast seminar is open to everyone, but mostly for those who work in the business community, interested in the interaction between different disciplines as an important tool that enables the future workforce to require 21st-century skills.
