The competition has begun!

The competition for the European Champions of Technology has started! Yesterday was the official first day of the competition, where 120 students gave their best to find solutions for the tasks proposed by the companies.

The case study task was proposed by the city of Brno. It consisted of creating a plan of a sensoric laboratory in the Brno Exhibition Hall. The laboratory would serve to collect different types of data in order to understand the problems of the city and to improve it by making it smart. In the end of the day, the participants’ ideas were presented in front of a jury.

The reactions of the participants were positive even with such a time-wise challenging task, saying “…it was very clear what we had to do…” and “…we managed to do it and are satisfied with the results.”.

Skoda proposed the team design task that will have a duration of two days. The proposed task was to create a vehicle capable of lifting 3 boxes from a shelf, moving them through an obstacle course and storing them in another shelf at the end of the course. Today there will be the presentations of solutions that the students came up with.
