Company technological tour

On 13th of June at our office, we had guests from 6th class from the Primary School in Brzóze along with their teachers. It was an award in the contest for the best presentation during the previously described Safer Internet Day (9th of March). We started the trip in the morning, when all employees were in the office. At the beginning, we invited pupils and teachers to the conference room, where Mrs. Joanna told us exactly what the company was doing, and additionally we invited the President of the Board, who talked about how the whole company works. One of the engineers led a complicated, and at the same time interesting, lecture during which he talked about technical matters. Then we showed the students around the office until we came to the so-called green links. There are technicians and engineers there, who showed the students how the phone and monitor can recognize faces. Kids were delighted. The next point of the trip was to show our server room, which also delighted the teachers. Visiting the rooms and getting to know the departments, we found ourselves in the place where the Marketing Department is working, who gave gifts to everyone with the new Intelligent Technologies S.A. logo. In the Legal Department, students asked our lawyers why there are stones on some desks. Next we went to the place where we started sightseeing. At the end we made a photo together. We were very pleased when we got a gift in the form of a photo of the whole school and a special thank you, which we got from director. We spent very interesting time together, we hope that the students liked it too.

22nd Science Picnic

We took part in the Science Picnic for the third time. This year the theme was “Motion”. On this occasion, we decided to do three experiments, which were very popular.

Both this year and last year the weather was good, thanks to which there were plenty of visitors, which resulted in a huge number of visitors wishing to taste different forms of motion.

The three experiments already mentioned were named:

  • Emotions in motion.
  • Thought in constant motion.
  • Putting the ball in motion by concentration and the rhythm of the heart (biofeedback).

The aim of the first experiment was to indicate the impact of emotions in the process of human behavior and to show the biological and psychological mechanisms that are in constant motion and interaction with the external environment.

  1. The experiment participant put his hand in a special box so that he could not see what was in it.
  2. The experimenter individually gave various items to the participant, evoking different emotions and asking specific questions.
  3. After the experiment, all processes that have occurred have been discussed and explained by the person conducting the experiment.

The purpose of the second experiment was to show how the process of registering information from the environment and extracting it from storage magazines works. It consisted in presenting the continuity of traffic in recording information.

  1. The participant was putting on headphones.
  2. Each participant’s ear reached a different information material.
  3. After the listening session, the participant passed a short test checking how much information he managed to remember.
  4. When the experiment ended, the lecturer explained all the mechanisms and processes that took place during the show.

The third experiment was biofeedback.

  1. The participant put a special device on the head, which read the rhythm of the heart.
  2. His task was to put the stationary blower in motion and run the ball through the obstacle course.
  3. After completing the course, the trainer explained how biofeedback works and what this method can be used for.

We are very happy that we had the opportunity to participate in this inspiring event. We hope to see you next year.
