A taste of technology and engineering

Pupils in the first year of secondary school at OBS Kofschip in Volendam visited Materieelbeheer Vroom (Vroom Machinery Management) in Middelie last week. Our specialists Bram and Coos explained to the girls and boys about what is involved in respect of overhaul, maintenance and repair of our plant and machinery.

The visit was the brainchild of MIG-Tech-netwerk Waterland, an organisation that promotes working in the field of engineering and technology, and offers a platform that forms a bridge between businesses and technical colleges. The key areas of interest for this working group are re-evaluation of 'manual intelligence’, a greater focus on technology and engineering and the technical trades, and an opportunity for practical lessons in technology in secondary school. And seeds are also sown even at the level of primary education, as children are taken to visit businesses at that age as well.
