Yesterday Solliance hosted Young Brainport Summer School (YBSS). YBSS consist of over 40 top talents in the age of 15 to 18 years from all around the world. In a busy program they are visiting high tech companies in the Brainport Eindhoven region in a unique and unforgettable way.
The visit at Solliance consisted of a factory tour and a practical workshop where four teams competed in an engineering challenge. The goal was to develop a functional thin-film solar powered system with limited resources, parts and time. First the enthusiastic future scientist and engineers had a quick look at a table full of solar system related parts and tools. After a group brainstorm session they build amazing solar powered products, functional lift made out of cups, solar powered ventilator a small solar powered boat and electrocoil were realized.
