Igor Gawron, SELA Cohort 2016
Igor Gawron co-designed and delivered a recent Excellence Hub workshop ‘Making Ideas Happen’, with two other members of SELA. He writes about his experiences below.
What I was expecting to be an easy two- day task turned out to be a several- week long process. Even though it cost me a lot of stress it was a great experience and I am really happy I took the challenge. Even though I have worked in education it’s the first time when I really felt I had an impact. As soon as the young people realised it’s not another boring school exercise, they immediately started engaging and stayed focused for the whole, six hours!
At the end of the long day the kids left the University, smiles on their faces, discussing their designs and hopefully, with a better understanding of what engineering and enterprise are all about.
