This week teachers and students from HETEL´s schools La Salle Berrozpe, Egibide, Salesianos Deusto, Somorrostro and Zulaibar are in the Netherlands to present the project that, for 2 months and in cooperation with ROC Da Vinci college, have been designing in the framework of Diseinua International.
This year, the project consisted of the design of a plastic injection machine. The students, working in international teams (Netherlands-Basque Country) have presented their projects in front of 60 people (students, teachers and companies from the Netherlands), being the presentations in English and answering to all technical questions about their work.
At the end of the presentation, a ranking with the 4 best projects has been made, attending to various criteria (presentation, quality of plans or manufacturing possibilities).
This experience, possible thanks to the support of BBK Fundazioa and Fundación Vital, has been very enriching both for students and teachers, not only from the point of view of technical competences development but also for their personal and social development.
We are very glad to be able to keep alive this experience, which started 4 academic years ago and we hope to keep offering this opportunity to our students in the future!
