Since April Saint-Quentin has a new form of education: POP School IoT Maker, powered by Faubourg Numérique. POP School is one of the initiatives defined in the roadmap of Saint-Quentin French Tech.
The trainees at POP School in Saint-Quentin have built weather stations that will meet the needs of the city: to optimize the watering of the city grounds for economic and ecological reasons.
In only two months after the start of their training, they installed one of these prototypes at the Philippe-Roth Stadium, assisted by Frédérique Macarez (mayor of Saint-Quentin, Vice-President of the Agglomeration). Two other stations will be set up at the Debrésie Stadium and the Marcel Bienfait Stadium.
” We worked on it for about a month.” says Pierre Josselin. “We used sensors that we bought and assembled to create a station. The latter is also composed of a solar panel. Other parts have been created with a 3D printer.” (Parts of this article were copied from an article in l’Aisne Nouvelle).
This new form of education offers an innovative, immersive, agile and horizontal learning method, favoring peer-to-peer, project mode and developing collaborative capacity. It is an experimental approach, complementary to the offer of secondary and vocational training, which allows to respond agile to the needs of companies such as those of the Faubourg Numérique in Saint-Quentin.
POP School is a 100% professional training offer that allows you to respond agile to needs not covered today, with a double objective of adaptation and knowledge development. More info on POP School.
