Plansee held its first Digital Days course, organised in collaboration with Makerspace, at the Chamber of Commerce in Reutte, Austria, July 9–13, 2018. Attended by students aged 15–18, the programme sought to introduce young learners to digitisation and technology across five days of workshops with the theme, ‘Let yourself be inspired by modern technology.’
Topics covered during the week included Additive Manufacturing, CAD, app prototyping, laser cutting, Lego robotics and augmented reality. On Friday 13 July, attendees had the opportunity to present their projects and experiments to teachers and representatives of the Reutte Chamber of Commerce, as well as their parents and family, at a small closing event.
The course organisers reported a high level of enthusiasm from both students and trainers. A second week of Digital Days will be attended by twenty-one students aged 12–14 at the beginning of September 2018.
