The Young Technician Club is the name of workshops organized in the Crafts Vocational School in Pilzno, intended for students who want to broaden their knowledge of mechanics. An employee of OMEGA Pilzno took part in one of the meetings, held on March 14. His role was to help student complete a task of designing a car that runs on water, with a particular technical specification.
The challenge’s originator was Anna Smolucha, a head teacher of the Crafts Vocational School in Pilzno. She wanted to encourage young people to develop their construction skills. The experienced expert – a VOLVO service technician from OMEGA Pilzno – also took part in this task. He supervised and monitored work progress of groups in which the students worked on their projects. Thanks to the professional advice and useful hints, all 3 groups created initial concepts of water-fueled vehicles that are able to drive straight on a longer route.
All projects were designed based on the unconventional use of knowledge of mechanics, that is why they were submitted to the Water-Fueled Vehicles Provincial Tournament.
