While the TeamDare robot band played a cheerful tune, more than 3,000 visitors were ready to be amazed on the Campus. Just as in previous years the Campus participated in the High Tech Discovery Route (HTOR) during Dutch Technology Week. The HTOR was a great success once again this year.Young and old joined the activities on the Campus. Children could make their own molecules at CTMM, try out gaming at EIT Digital, make a rainbow at NineSigma and even build a wind car with the partners of Brainport Industries. Fun activities that introduce young explorers to the world of technology in an accessible way. You can’t miss an opportunity to make your own hair gel, of course!
There was also plenty to keep adults occupied during HTOR. Companies such as VDL Groep and Philips Lighting opened their doors. Lots of people grabbed this opportunity to take a look behind the scenes. Needed some rest after all the activities and information, or simply attracted by the beautiful weather, several visitors used the rowing boats to take a tour over the Campus lake, accompanied by the student rowing society Theta. Some brave souls even dared try the grasshopper-rosti from the Foodtruck, but most stuck to the delights of The Colour Kitchen. With a good mixture of activities, the Campus succeeded in finding just the right balance between content and relaxation. HTOR 2015 was a great day out for young and old, and a truly educational experience.
