Pilot project Politeknika Ikastegia Txorierri Derio Spain

  • Politeknika Txorierri, as part of the NET-ENT project and in order to participate more in the municipality, has made a solidary learning challenge. Since we wanted the production students to produce an actual product, the teachers together with the students thought about producing a walking stick for the elder. 25 custom made walking sticks for 25 retired people of the village where our VET center is located. The design students are responsible for the design of the stick. The mechanical students will manufacture the end part of the cane and the students of PP the knob, according to the design made by the design students. Materials such as aluminium and stainless steel will be used through the manufacturing processes. The marketing students will do the marketing plan and the digital marketing. Through an interview, the needs and recommendations of the elder are taken into account to design and manufacture a customized walking stick.
