From 17th – 19th May 2017, students and teachers from 5 schools from EU gathered on Vegova Ljubljana, where the symposium was held this year. The aim of this year’s symposium was to create a system that would be able to regulate the level of the water.
Each group has created their own system before the symposium and had presented it on the first day.
Next two days, the groups were working together to create two separate systems out of several smaller systems. Systems were designed using different Technologies, but following the same principle of measuring the water level and pumping the excess water from one container to another one. Teams used different Technologies, including Arduino microcontrollers and Siemens controllers. When connecting different systems, the biggest problem was communication between the systems, but at the end, everything worked out.
On the final day, the systems were presented and the certificates of participation were given to the students and teachers.
During their stay in Slovenia, the teachers and students had organized afternoon activities, including the visit of Postojna Cave and the ride with the boat on Ljubljanica river in Ljubljana.
