Students and teachers from Târgu Ocna invite you to the unique Fair of Products made by them through 3D printing in the Solidarity FabLab digital technology laboratory. This fair aims to create contacts and generate opportunities for collaboration between the students from Solidarity FabLab Târgu Ocna and the industries or business people in the area, with the intention of introducing young people on the labor market. We invite you to join us to offer a better future to young people.
The objects created by high school students for this event are diverse and funny: from decorative items, toys to assemble, personalized souvenirs and globes printed with photos, young people will come up with the most original gift ideas. Visitors will be able to participate in a workshop for printing three-dimensional objects.
The fair will be located in the pedestrian area between the Assumption Church and the central park of the city, Carol I Street, Târgu Ocna, and will be open on August 15, 2022, between 9.00 – 20.00.
