Swiss National Future Day 2022

The Swiss National Future Day invites 5th to 7th grade students to visit different working environments to get insight into the various professions they can choose for their career. This year, the NCCR Digital Fabrication took part in the Future Day at ETH Zurich and showed 25 children an insight into the working world of some of its researchers and technicians.

The children approached the topic of digital fabrication in a playful way. They completed a post run with three different stations that introduced them to the professions of the research focus.

The programme? A colorful mix, just like the research being done here: drawing a dream house in virtual space with VR, hammering in nails by hand and then with the big robot in the Robotic Fabrication Lab, or a studio where robots wield brushes instead of artists.
