EnTranCe will host the regional preliminaries of the Technasium Top Award 2016 in the Energy Barn on February 25 from 13:00 – 16:30!
Technasium students from schools within the Netherlands will compete for the final places in the Technasium Top Award 2016. Commissioned by this years’s client, IGOV Innovation (Inter Gemeentelijk overleg Openbare Verlichting), the student’s assignment is to think about a lighting concept for the public space. This concept should adapt to the lighting needs of the users but does not let them experience light pollution. The schools that present the best idea in the regional preliminaries will go through to the national finals in April (22-23 April 2016) together with the winning student team. The teams ensure the full implementation of their idea, from a first sketch to a working prototype. They work with head and hands on this exciting R&D assignment.
This year’s client of the Technasium Top Award 2016 is the IGOV Innovation platform (Inter Gemeentelijk overleg Openbare Verlichting).
About the Technasium Top Award
The Technasium Top Award challenges students to come up with innovative solutions for an yearly changing client. The previous edition of the Technasium Top Award delivered record figures: 75 participating schools, more than 5,000 participating students. The award went to students of the Caland Lyceum (Amsterdam), for their part-design of a sustainable and energy-generating school building based on biomimicry: the ‘aquawall’, a generator based on the sweat of mammals.
