Pilot project for Aruba signed
The European Commission has signed a pilot project for Aruba. By teaching electronic technologies to the next generation, OCTA Innovation’s EU-funded pilot project will assist in building the foundations of a knowledge-based economy in Aruba.
E-based equipment such as 3D printers, lasers and shape scanner will be bought for use in after-school clubs or other venues so that elementary and secondary school students can learn how to operate the equipment and be inspired. The project will be mounted by a project manager and two technical trainers.
The results of the project will be a disseminated through different communication channels such as newsletters, press releases, website and presentations. The aim is that others will draw inspiration from the project and eventually ‘copy’ it in other OCTs, or further afield.
