Hexagon joins forces with De Ontdekfabriek in the Netherlands

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division sponsors interactive factory experience centre for children and families

12 2月 2020

The Benelux organisation of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has announced a new sponsorship agreement with De Ontdekfabriek, an immersive science and technology experience centre based in a former factory building in Eindhoven. 

De Ontdekfabriek, which translates as The Discovery Factory, gives children and families the opportunity to discover their passion for research, design, technology and innovation. Located in a disused Philips factory, the centre features films and inspiring interactive exhibits as well as running workshops where children can design, build and even 3D print their own inventions. The exhibit also aims to promote recycling and drive new ideas in sustainability. 

“Hexagon is committed to promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education in schools, universities and through other learning experiences such as De Ontdekfabriek,” explains Ankie Janssen, from the marketing team at Manufacturing Intelligence Benelux. “We believe it’s important to find more efficient and sustainable models for manufacturing and other critical industries in the future. De Ontdekfabriek is a truly inspirational space and we hope that the many young people who visit today will become technology innovators of the future – continuing to progress society while respecting the environment.”

Hexagon’s sponsorship of De Ontdekfabriek will continue for the next two years. More information about the experience centre can be found at deontdekfabriek.nl.
