A couple of weeks ago Luis Dinis, took Violeta for a demonstration @ IBM

According to his report the presentation was a success :)

 

“Entre os dias 10 e 13 de Julho, a “Violeta” esteve em demonstração na IBM.

Esta oportunidade surgiu no âmbito da iniciativa EX.I.T.E. – EXplorar os Interesses pela Tecnologia e Engenharia que é realizada em Portugal desde 2005 e no âmbito das práticas de responsabilidade social da IBM.

Este programa global visa contribuir para a redução da disparidade de género, nomeadamente no que se refere ao acesso às áreas das engenharias e ciências e ao trabalho colaborativo, por parte de jovens raparigas na faixa etária dos 11 aos 13 anos.

A “Violeta” fez um sucesso, especialmente porque o conceito de impressão em 3D é relativamente recente e mais ainda quando se percebe que uma inovação destas pode ser feita através da simples colaboração entre um grupo de pessoas.”
