FabSchool presents sustainable solutions by kids

On 13 December 2017, the final workshop of FabSchool took place at the Waag, where children demonstrated their sustainable solutions.

By participating in the FabSchool workshops, young people develop problem-solving skills: they discover that they are able to solve seemingly huge problems. They learn how to turn these problems into concrete and executable ideas. We show them how technology works, what processes lie behind technological solutions and what opportunities technology offers. With this knowledge they are able to realize their ideas. The workshops always focus on the interests of the participants.
