“Recognizing and exploiting digital chances” is the topic of the 8th EURegio media day which will take place in Traunreut, Germany on November 21st. Our DOIT project coordinator Sandra Schön will give a presentation on “Making for Beginners”.
The large network created by DOIT’s partners provides great opportunities to share the project. Our partner at YouthProAktiv, Paloma Cantero Goméz, has published an article on Social Innovators, in which she also discusses the important role that DOIT plays in teaching skills.
In most cases, childish curiosity evolves into a hobby and a direction to go. That’s why it is very important to let children express themselves in all ways possible as long as they show excitement and interest in what they do. For example, let them build new devices and invent new concepts from old toys and mechanisms, even though they are not going to be functioning. By doing these things, children improve their creativity and practical skills which could become their future hobby. And we have a great example to show everyone how true it is: two friends, Lukas and Šarūnas, have been young engineers since the age of 5. By the time they started to create incredible innovations and even built their own 3D printer when they were just 16 years old. So keep reading because it is going to be a story about two professional future-engineers.
On November 7th in Social Innovation Village at the Web Summit 2018 our partners from YouthProAktiv and Salzburg Research, Paloma Cantero Gómez and Eva Hollauf, promoted DOIT Europe project, its goals and achievements and also encouraged to become one of Doers, Heroes, facilitators or even ambassadors.
