Proud Managing Directors
“I am delighted to launch the first permanent Newton Room in Galicia. The Mobile Newton Room was well received by students and the general public in the city of Lugo two years ago. With the permanent room we will be able to extend the same opportunity to larger numbers of students for many years going forward” Managing Director of FIRST Scandinavia, Stian Elstad, says.
The collaboration with Boeing
“Newton is a project close to my heart. As an engineer and leader, I have first-hand experience of how rewarding learning and working in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics is,” Managing Director of Boeing Southern Europe, Angela Natale, said.
In the meantime, the Mobile Newton Room and Pop-Up Newton Room continue their journey across Europe. This fall and winter, the Newton Concept will be presented in several places, with the hope of eventually introducing more permanent Newton Rooms to our network in these communities:
• Bari, Italy
• Hoogerheide, Netherlands
