In September, 12 students from Fundacja Efekt Motyla, Poland, arrived in Malaga eager to gain new skills such as how to operate FDM-type 3D printers or the CNC machining centre.
The group was working in teams of two. Each team did a lot of tasks related to their field of interest. They have learnt how to search for mechanical and electronic suppliers, as well as constructive solutions for mechanics. After these intensive two weeks, students know how to handle and use electronic measuring equipment and are able to calculate and choose electronic components.
During their two-week stay in Malaga, the students visited the most amazing places in southern Spain, they went on a trip to Cordoba, a city famous for the highest summer temperatures in Spain (sometimes it’s even 48 degrees outside!) They saw a historic centre of Córdoba, which has gained through time the status of UNESCO. We are sure that this experience will never be forgotten!
Without a doubt, being a part of this project was a very exciting and important life lesson for the students. We can’t wait to see you guys again!
In practice, we assembled various systems, something similar to engineering and robotics. Moreover, we programmed a system in the C++ language. For me, it was my first experience in this branch, so I also improved my knowledge of programming. In addition to this, we were shown and told how 3D printers are arranged, after which we independently designed the parts and printed them. I loved it!
I wanted to go to Spain because I was interested in the local customs. It is a beautiful country with an amazing landscape. I was surprised by the variety of food and the culture of the people. During my stay here, I worked at a company that designs devices using Arduino and 3D printing. In the courses, I learned the basics of electronics and programming in Arduino. What is more, I learned how to create electrical circuits and program PCBs. The most interesting project was creating a 3D project. In my spare time, I visited Torremolinos and the surrounding towns.
