On Thursday, May 19th, 11 youngsters from Schiedam, have visited VFA Solutions. The purpose of this visit was to show what one can do with technology and at the same time show technology is not boring, but can be fun as well.
The day was organised by TechnetkringNWN, an organisation which includes the municipality of Schiedam and local businesses. These parties work together to enhance the enthusiasm of the youth towards technology. Of course, VFA Solutions is a member of TechnetkringNWN.
The day started at Rijnmond Bouw, where several companies gave short presentations about the technical professions within the company. Click here for a description of the morning. In the afternoon, the students were able to visit one of the companies.
At VFA Solutions, the afternoon started with a brief introduction about air quality and the design process of our products, from the first sketch to a manufactured product. This allowed them to view the complete process of designing products. A part of the day was a smoke test, where we filled a room with smoke and turned on one of our air purifiers. With measuring equipment, we demonstrated how effective air purification can be, this was a great success.
As VFA Solutions, we really enjoy these days, as we can pass our passion on to someone else. This is especially true when students become enthusiastic about your story. All in all a great day!
