The various initiatives supported by tbp electronics:
- the Formula Student Team Delft, including development of an electric racing car
- the GO-college on Goeree-Overflakkee (private secondary education in technology)
- TechniekSucces with the Lego Brainstorms at de Westhoek primary school in Ouddorp
Formula Student Team Delft
The setting is the Dreamhall on the campus of TU in Delft: this is where the Formula Student Team Delft designs and builds an electric racing car every year to compete in an international racing competition. For several years, tbp has sponsored this engineering challenge by offering DfX analyses and supplying printed circuit board assemblies (pcba’s) which improve the team’s performance. The strict deadlines, intensive teamwork and pressure to perform make the competition a perfect testing ground for learning. You can read more about this in our Way of Life newsletters Way of Life.
Goeree-Overflakkee wants to be fully energy-neutral by 2020 This ambitious objective has led to many initiatives on the island. Energy Island, which was first organised in 2017, helped to unit all developments in the field of sustainable energy and innovation.
Innovative care was one of the sub-sessions, and was intended for secondary schools in the region. Ton Plooy (CEO of tbp) and Maja Rudinac (CEO & co-founder of Robot Care Systems) gave fascinating presentations. The venue was tbp’s own auditorium in Dirksland. Several year 6 secondary students from CSG Prins Maurits in Middelharnis provided information about their profile paper on healthcare You can read more about this in our Way of Life newsletter Way of Life number 42.
‘Children are the employees of the future’, according to Technieksucces. In a partnership with de Westhoek primary school in Ouddorp, Technieksuccess has initiated an educational pilot study at the school as part of the Smart Water programme on Goeree-Overflakkee. The aim is to make young people enthusiastic about technology and robotics. During the lessons, which have been specially developed, the children find out about programming, controlling robots and virtual reality headsets. As one of the enthusiastic sponsors of this local initiative, tbp also provides a presentation. If the pilot succeeds, the teaching programme will be adopted by other primary schools on Goeree-Overflakkee.
