A <===> Makerfest <===> was organized at Lycée Technique ESCH/ALZETTE on 04-07-2017. Over 1.000 persons, apparently 2.000 expected, were present on the second Makerfest at LTESCH (Luxembourg), organized by BEECREATIVE, Service National de la Jeunesse, SCRIPT. Lots of different schools from around the country were present with their students (learners) from any age! As presenters of THEIR MakerSpaces and/or as visitors to take part in the many offered “ateliers”. From 3D Printing, Laser cutting, Green Screen video recordings, Fidget-Spinners making (THAT was THE HIT!), coding with Scratch, LEGO MINDSTORMS and NOT to forget <===> KNIWWELINO <===> a NEW project created by LIST (Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology) who was specially developed to meet the needs of coding for youth!
It was a pleasure to see with HOW MANY fun the kids and teens were “making” and LEARNing 😉 IF THAT isn’t the future, WHAT else! 😉 I wish I would be that young again to visit such schools 😉

Remember about the basic Physics!? Any action has a counter-action OR ===> Isaac Newton: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction <=== Might be GOOD to remember THAT and to tell it to YOUR students (learners) 😉
