In collaboration with the MakerSpace[A] in Amstetten, three glass processing technicians from LiSEC were able to use in real life what they learned so far.

Why are hands-on projects the best for apprentices? "Because you learn the most by doing it yourself," the three glass processing technicians from LiSEC Florian Buchberger, Severin Gassner and Lukas Schuller agree. In collaboration with MakerSpace[A] in Amstetten – an association for collaborative work in a technical environment – the three apprentices were able to use in real life what they had learned so far, from planning to assembly, and lend a hand with the glass front that was used in the extension of the MakerSpace[A] hall.

Andreas Mader, who had a dual role in this project, as LiSEC Product Management Logistics and as an enthusiastic MakerSpace[A] member, is delighted with the collaboration: "The apprentices were very committed and motivated and the different approaches to discussions and ideas also had a lasting added value for me." 

After an on-site inspection, the three glass processing technicians were able to put all their theoretical knowledge into practice. "We did everything ourselves, from the first drawing or rather design to creating plans and assembly," says Severin Gassner. "With the support of the apprentice trainers and the professionals at LiSEC, of course." The team of glass processing technician apprentices has experienced first-hand that not everything always goes according to plan and that the first idea doesn't always have to be the best. "But that's exactly what makes the whole process so interesting. You learn instantly from your mistakes, and you also have to orientate yourself to factors such as budget limits, legal requirements and regulations, etc.," says Lukas Schuller. "But you can accomplish anything as a team." After the intensive planning phase in April, the glass front was installed in the second week of June. Here, too, there was constant coordination to support the apprentices. "The installation went really well. We had ongoing support for queries. This was particularly helpful when lifting the glass sheets –- it's more difficult than you might think at first," says Florian Buchberger. With a total of seven glass sheets, each of which required six people to transport, installation was actually a key aspect in the planning of this project.

MakerSpace[A] board member Günther Sterlike also had words of praise: "The generous support from LiSEC, especially through the cooperation with the apprentices, is invaluable for us at MakerSpace[A]. It's refreshing to see young talents working together and enriching our project." 

The new apprentice trainer Stefan Fröschl also sees a clear focus on hands-on projects for the apprentices in the future: "Hands-on projects are perfect for the apprentices. Not only the practical relevance, but also the social component plays an important role – teamwork with adults at eye level!"
