VMI participated in “Weekend van de Wetenschap”
Visitors during the Science Weekend (Weekend van de Wetenschap) very much enjoyed their glimpse behind the scenes at the VMI engineering works in Epe, Netherlands.
Visitors had the chance to watch the production of an automobile tire on a high-tech VMI machine, while younger attendees were encouraged to create their own workpiece. A game of skill was also arranged, with visitors challenged to fire a rubber band into a robot-controlled moving basket.
VMI is eager to give young people a chance to discover all the new prospects that the technical professions have to offer. The Science Weekend proved to be a fantastic opportunity for VMI to get young people interested in technology. During the event, companies, institutes, universities, agencies and museums in over 200 locations in the Netherlands opened their doors to the public.
