In the closing conference primary and secondary school students and also teachers participated who were involved in the activities during the implementation. In the event all the pieces of equipment were presented and tested ( CNC turning machine, 3D printers, LEGO Robots, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, plotters) which were programmed to produce different kinds of products due to the enthusiasm, curiosity, interest, activity and acquired knowledge of the young.
