On Thursday, October 08, the 2nd Long Night of Technology took place at the Vienna Institute of Technology (TGM). A lot of it was there to discover and learn for several hundred visitors. Robotics was one of the priorities of the Long Night of Technology. A workshop dealt with the construction of a small robot that responds to light. In other workshops you could, for example, program a robot vacuum cleaner. Those who wanted to immerse themselves in the industrial world, also had the ability to control the arm of an industrial robot.
The topic of 3D printing was in focus during the Long Night of Technology. Researchers from the Technical University of Vienna presented a do it yourself 3D printer. Also in the workshop of TGM you could delve more into this topic and watch a professional 3D printer at work. That impressive projects already can be carried out in the period of study, showed the racing team of FH Campus Wien, which introduced its new Boliden MAKO CR 115th. With this racing car the team starts at the Formula Student. The rocket parts brought from the TU Vienna Space Team were more than worth a look! Right at the entrance of the TGM you could fly a drone. Those who wanted to focus more on the ground, could trigger an earthquake in the sandbox in the earthquake-laboratory of the TGM. And when hunger came, you could just energize a sausage (“Würstel”) and eat it afterwards! The colorful program was great interest and enthusiasm among the often young visitors but also for their adult companions. We look forward to more events like this!
