We spent an entire morning at the Startup Center socializing with the students and professors of the High School “9. maj”. As part of this "additional class", they first became acquainted with the techniques and advanced technologies at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering within the Laboratory of Robotics and Laboratory of Electrical Machines, Electric Motors and Traction, and then came to our Center to learn how to successfully work on their projects and why is this something to think about while still in school.
Students were given the opportunity to briefly present their award-winning idea to our team - a virtual chemistry lab for easier analytical chemistry practice. The fact is that there are a large number of talented teenagers that are interested in getting started on their ideas as early as in their high school years, and many of these ideas are from the field of innovative advanced technology.
Collaboration was also achieved at the elementary school level, so we had the opportunity to host students of the fourth and fifth grades of the elementary school "Sveti Sava", "Kole Rasic" and "Ucitelj Tasa", as well as their professors. They saw how 3D printing works, walked through the Fortress in the 19th century with the help of VR, played a game of virtual tennis as well as real table football, so their visit to our Center was an unforgettable first encounter with advanced technologies.
Our goal is to promote innovative entrepreneurship to young people as early as school age, so that they can gain timely insight into all the opportunities offered to them in the business world in the future, so we plan to host more classes who will undoubtedly find this to be their favorite extracurricular activity.
