TechMed Centre experience - Open House UT
The University of Twente will open its doors on Saturday 3 June. Young and old, people who are curious about what takes place on campus are welcome and discover various activities. The TechMed Centre Institute will of course join this great initiative. In the TechMed Centre (Technohal, building No 18) we create for the little ones, a 'Children's Square' and older children and adults can walk around the building and will be informed/inspired at demos and join workshops. In addition, we refer visitors to other TechMed facilities located on the campus of the University of Twente (but not located in the TechMed Centre (Technohal).
Where & When
programme & activities
During your visit to the TechMed Centre (Technohal) you can participate in the following activities. This overview will be updated as the event gets closer.
For children up to around 8 years old, a square full of fun activities will take place in the middle of the building. We introduce the children to medical technology in an accessible way:
Have you completed all activities? Then you have earned your 'Technical Medical Doctor of the Future certificate' (with the colouring page on the back).
Do you want to experience what is taking place on a technological medical aspect on the University of Twente (and possibly in collaboration with partners)? Then we recommend that you follow this tour. We have mapped out a route that takes you via our highlights. At every 'stop' a demo/workshop/explanation will take place at certain times. This will take place in small groups and takes a few minutes. If you have just missed this, you can wait for it or walk to the next stop (and always walk back). Personalize your own TechMed experience!
Other TechMed activities
In other buildings on campus, you can find many more medical technological labs/spaces with demos and activities. As soon as we have a good overview of this, we will place it here and visualize it on a map.
