About this activity

The #Tech4EU stand is the place to be if you want to try out a multitude of fun techie activities. Girls, boys, youngsters, adults, elderly – anyone can try coding, learn about robotics and see how a 3-D printer works.


You can also talk to a real robot - GrowMeUp - and perhaps take a selfie?


We also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the .eu Internet domain. Find out more about the history of .eu – the Internet extension for all EU citizens, companies and organisation.


Last, but not least, take a #Tech4EUpicture of yourself and post it on Instagram. Show your friends you dig digital!


Check out our young Belgium CoderDojo coaches at work and witness live what they are creating with code. Or let them help you programme your own interactive story, game or animation in Scratch – a visual coding language.


Techies Lab Belgium invites kids and teenagers to experiment, learn and play with technology, such as robots, games and 3D printing. At 11.00, 13.00 and 15.00 visitors of all ages can take part in epic coding tournaments. No coding skills needed – just sign up in advance! Teams will be provided with all the material necessary and given a precise coding challenge. The winning team will receive a techie award and all participants will get a badge.


You can also say hello to our robot friend GrowMeUp and perhaps take a selfie? GrowMeUp is designed to make older people stay active, independent and socially involved. He can interact with people of all ages though and answers questions. Give it a try!
