Zeton Excursion

On the afternoon of 4 February, enthusiastic members of Astatine cycled from the university to Zeton, in the hopes of finding out more about their engineering, design and fabrication services. We were greeted with a warm welcome and given some more details about the company’s operations through a presentation. Afterwards, Thomas Ladrak, one of Zeton’s sales managers, showed us videos the moving of a pilot plant from the factory and eventual to their final location. Now that we had a good idea of their operations and the excitement was built up, it was time to have a peak into the factory. Finally, our excursion ended with a drink where we could socialise with more of Zeton’s employees. They even treated us to a lovely goodie bag.

All in all, we really enjoyed the excursion. Thank you Iwan and Zeton for helping to organise this event!

The Sint Drink

The ATAC coordinated an awesome edition of our annual Sinterklaas Activity. The evening was filled with fun mini games and a guest appearance from Sinterklaas himself. Full disclosure it was actually Advanced Technology’s very own Programme Director, Herbert Wormeester. He came dressed for the part with his helpers and sacks full of gifts! He told us some tales about the year so far which were hilarious and then gave out gifts to all of the attendees. The rest of the evening was spent admiring our gifts, playing mini games and just chatting and enjoying the holiday spirit.

ATtentie 14-1

There’s this really nice tree just outside my bedroom window, and as of writing this, the leaves on this tree are just starting to turn golden. So that’s it, then. I guess I’m writing a leaf-appreciation article. That’ll get Sander off my back.
Oxford Dictionary calls a leaf “a flattened structure of a higher plant, typically green and blade-like, that is attached to a stem directly or via a stalk”.

Christophe is leaving the Attencie, so this edition he is talking about leaves. This and more in an all new Attentie, to be on your doormat sooner than we finished it (so it has plenty of time)! Click the image below for the digital version.

VDL Almelo Excursion

Wednesday 16th of October Astatine visited VDL Almelo with 13 enthusiastic members. We started with an explanatory presentation from Puck, a factory engineer, about his daily duties. He closed his presentation with some fun pub quiz questions. After the presentation, we had a tour through the factory which ended with a more informal drink where we could talk to employees.

Thank you VDL and Imane for this nice excursion!
