“Makers of Tomorrow”: Enabling young talents to make a difference

Bosch's goal is to foster creativity and practical skills of aspiring engineers in a targeted manner. Launched in September 2016, students from the National University of Laos were given the challenge of drawing up ideas on how to reuse an old water tank that has been standing idle on the campus.

Creative workplace for students

With the opening of the creative learning and working space, the students have the opportunity to practically test out their ideas. In a space where they can meet and try out their latest ideas for new inventions and projects. It gives them the chance to improve their overall problem-solving and innovation skills by applying theoretical knowledge in real life.

"Our heads were full of theory and knowledge, but we lacked more experience and practice."
Watch how Bosch helped the students build up their creative workspace to gain further practical expertise.

“Through this project, our students have been able to showcase their potential, harness their creativity, and gain new skill sets in developing an innovative solution for the betterment of the community within our campus."

Prof. Dr. Somsy, president of National University of Laos
