“Recently I came accross this toy “moonsand”-sand that stays dry in water! And it triggered a long search on how it stays dry on the internet. I learned about “hydorphobic” qualities. So even to this day, interesting toys are still triggering my thrist to find out WHY”

“One of my favorite toys when I was a child was EMIGLIO-ROBOT the fact that I could control it fascinated me”
Silvia
Electrical and Electronic Engineer

“When I was a kid, I was obsessed with switches and buttons! To get me to stop playing with them, my mum had to pretend it would cause an explosion if I pressed them! (which wasn´t even effective).
I´ve always needed to know what they were doing and how they were working…and that is the basis of engineering”.
