Today we had the opportunity to show some projects of the bucky lab during the Bouwmaterialien en Innovatie Symposium in Delft. With more than 160 visitors we got a really good feedback.

Tyrza Ligthart eventmanager from BOUT and a former bucky lab student supported the team and was so kind to tell some insights about her project, which was also the biggest mock up we carried to the venue.
Many thanks Tyrza ! 

Marcel was also the host of one of the 3 parallel sessions of the event, and we had seen a bunch of inspiring lectures.  We were able to made some nice contacts and maybe we are able to cooperate with them in the future. So all in all a very good event and a recommendation for the next year !

We are happy to announce a new supporter of the bucky lab. With breur Ijzerhandel we have now a strong partner that has a huge assorment of tools, job site and industy related products. So in principle nearly everything we need to build our prototypes.

Breur will not only support us with their procucts for a decent price but also with their excellent services.
We are looking forward for a successful partnership.

Every year the TU Delft organizes an Alumni event for the whole university, this year the event was hosted in the faculty of Industrial Design and with more than 800 guests a big happening. An intersting program was set up to entertain the guests containing discussions, lectures and workshops. This time for the first time the bucky lab was asked to join also and we had two sessions in which the guests were able to build something.

The first session was a dome construction and we were able to set up the Cardboard dome form Bram and Patricia once again. It was quite a wow moment for the participants of the workshop seeing the dome come together in less than 17 minutes and you can see on the smile on their faces that they had fun this evening.

As a second sessions we build an inflatable structure, due to the limited space we had to do something more simpler then planned but it was already very impressive seeing a flat bag growing in size. Thats what you are able to do with inflatable structures, something big but at the same time lighweight.

Have a look at the pictures, this was really a fun event for all of us !

Having 65 students in the course demands some creativity ...getting a room was a problem, so we did it bucky lab style with our easy up Romazo tent and a mobile projector ...

It worked perfectly and creates also a campfire like experience, thats the way we like it !
