Dream big, make a change
SPARK Makers Zone and the Ontdekfabriek join forces in an appealing workshop on 22 October in Eindhoven where you learn to fly and dream big, and set foot on actual realisation of these bold ideas.
Dreams may be bigger when you are young, and fade out when you’re older. As we know more, we tend to actually do less with realising dreams. But let’s be real: the world needs dreams, in order to conquer the challenges we face today. SPARK and the Ontdekfabriek are convinced that dreaming big is a good idea, and start doing is the best option for today.
Join us at our workshop!
The workshop of SPARK en the Ontdekfabriek is part of the program of the Law to Preserve Creativity.
The Law to Preserve Creativity is a manifesto in which partners from education, the business community, care, culture and government bodies agree on how they wish to stimulate the creative development of every resident of the Brabant region.
The Inventors best kept secret
The Factory of Discoveries will premiere their new adventurous film
The Ontdekfabriek uses storytelling to involve schools, universities and companies in their challenge stimulating youth for innovation and creativity. They strongly believe society needs young inventors to come up with solutions for our future challenges.
The pictures shown here are screen-shots of the new film created with the help of Noord-Brabant. The story tells about a young inventor named Finn who is eager to come up with a new invention. Unfortunately ideas don’t spring to mind. So he starts combining other inventions. Together with his friend Kiki he roams the suburbs in search for devices to build his new invention. In their search Kiki and Finn discover a workshop where an engineering student secretly builds robots. In the end it’s Kiki’s empathic view on people that helps Finn to come up with inventions for their neighbours.
