The National Competition “Road to the Future” is the only initiative of its kind to date, supporting secondary schools. The goal was to engage students and motivate them to reflect on what lies ahead. The competition is organized by the Poznan-based Ei-System Sp. z o.o.
The project could be presented in one of three areas: the world of the future, professions of the future and social relations in the future, and the condition was the use of a 3D printer. As many as 60 Teams, out of nearly 180 entered, learned the benefits of using 3D technology. Importantly, students gained new competencies and skills that will better prepare them to choose their dream university and professions of the future. Each project team received the necessary tools for their work – a Banach School 3D printer along with filament, and support from well-known and respected specialists from the world of education. Each team was able to choose its own content supervisor: Lukasz Gierk, Jacek Kawalek or Artur Tutka, who assisted the students at every stage of the project. The competition’s substantive patron was Professor. Jacek Pyżalski, who contributes with great passion and commitment to expanding digital competence among young people.

First place – High School with a Bilingual Branch named after him. P. Michalowski TSSP in Krakow.
