Energy and Technology Museum invites Vilnius schoolchildren and students to join the project “Upcycling – Bring Old Electronics to New Life!”, which will take place from May 2nd to December 16th. The museum team invites you to express yourself in technical creation, using new and already used components of electronic equipment.
Why is it worth participating in the project?
ETM has been developing and delivering interactive installations for several years. In 2020, together with “Vilnius Tech” students, we created interactive installations about the physical laws of sound and light. In 2021, six new “Upcycling” exhibits have been created, which are now part of the museum exhibition.
More about last year’s “Upcycling” results – here.
The interactive installation project is an educational tool for the younger generation that promotes self-expression in technical creation, it provides practical knowledge, contributes to a sustainable society and initiates a meaningful dialogue between academia and the museum. The project partner is “EMP Recycling”, which contributes to the development of a modern waste sorting and recycling system.
During the project, creative meetings will take place in the ETM electronics workshop, participants will generate installation ideas and discuss their implementation. An opening event will take place at the end of the project in December.
If your school has a FabLab workshop, you can contribute to the project by creating installations at your school. The museum, together with “EMP Recycling”, will provide all the necessary tools for the implementation of your creative ideas, and the works created will also be presented at the Energy and Technology Museum.
The authors of the most innovative installations will be awarded with the prizes established by the electronics store “Anodas” – “the gifts that inspire creation”. The project sponsor is Vilnius City Municipality.
