During a guided tour, visit the institute's mechanical workshop, where scientists' ideas for improving their experiments or innovations become reality. How does a simple hand sketch become a workpiece? What materials and machines does the workshop work with? Questions that the staff will be happy to answer while you look over their shoulders as they operate the machines. What kind of training and requirements are necessary to work and learn in such a workshop? Our trainee will be glad to provide information.
