Before I started studying Industrial Design, I finished Atheneum Extra at Vechtdal College Hardenberg. This means that I participated in the Begaafheidsprofielscholen (BPS) program, where I did many different projects and design challenges. For such projects, we had to make greenhouses, smart intersections and junctions for self-driving cars and had to do research about the plan to put humans on Mars. By doing these projects, I learned a lot about working together with different people and how to take on a design process by taking all the stakeholders into consideration, making different iterations and doing literary research on advanced topics.
Furthermore, I also participated in two masterclasses at the University of Twente. In one we had to come up with a solution to a specific problem that would be encountered when building a civilization on Mars. The second masterclass was about quantum computers. Here we had lectures and weekly assignments about the functioning and inner workings of quantum computers.
