This day you are the gueast of the PC Gebruikers Groep Thales Hengelo, event organizer and together with the Thales Personeels Vereniging the main sponsor.

After several years of having invited the HCC Robotics as a guest of the Thales PC user group, we have been inspired by the concept Maker Faire/Maker Festival to extend this event with a number of other interest groups such as the HCC 3d and the HCC AI. And from this region we found the TkkrLab willing to participate.

Because at previous events we noticed that our guests not only want to look but also want to do something, so we added a make and do part.

Summer Tech Day 2018 consists of 4 parts:
On the Upper Floor the focus is on showing an informing.
The Ground Floor is a market of doing and making.
In the Basement the exposition of the Thales company museum is open.
Outside the WoWi bus and whe are planning a Drone demontration.

Upper Floor

  • PCGG

    The PC Gebruikers Groep is a subsection of the Thales Personeels Vereniging and aims to help its members with Computer use in general and to organize thematic meetings to disclose and explain new developments. Furthermore, members can borrow appliances that they want to use occasionally and are expensive to purchase, like for example Diascanners and A3 photobook scanner, 3d scanner.
  • HCC!robotica/AI

    The interest group Robotics focuses on the study, development and manufacture of robots in the widest sense. Among robots we mean objects, structures and/or structure, which move independently or perform acts. Each year they hold a competition RoboRama where at RoboSumo is a part of, following a lines trail and a assignment in which robots go looking for empty cans and collect them. The interest group HCC! AI (Artificial intelligence) acts as a platform for exchanging knowledge and experiences with artificial intelligence, especially for non-professional or Semi-professional interested parties.
  • HCC!3D

    3d-printen is on the rise: a printer you buy now for about € 500,-. But what can you do with it? And how do you do it? also brings 3d scanners.
  • Tkkrlab

    The TkkrLab (Tukkerlab) is a space where participants and visitors can (learn to) use our available equipment such as laser cutter, 3d printer and Arduino. By exchanging knowledge and experience in our community, there is always someone who can help you on your way with your creative projects.
  • Projects

    At various locations on the upper floor will be places where projects with Raspberry Pi, Arduino and self-build 3d printers are demonstrated. And there is a place for Sparebots, Youtube movie
