Inspiring the next generation of engineers

Inspiring the next generation of engineers

As an academy providing offshore energy education for professionals, we believe excellent technical education is essential. Since we have a passion for sharing knowledge, we invited almost 200 children aged six to nine at De Oude Bibliotheek last month for a workshop on wind turbines. They were asked to design their own wind turbine blades and subsequently integrate them into a functioning wind turbine. We are proud that we were able to inspire children to explore offshore wind energy technology through hands-on learning and we were amazed by some of the designs they came up with. In addition, a small group of high school students visited DOB-Academy as part of a field trip to technology-orientated companies. We have enjoyed teaching them about offshore wind energy and playing our wind farm development game with them.
