Last day of Varaždin Conference: 21 June

Posted in General issues |

. Our day began with a visit to Electrical High school Kola.  Here we met with faculty and students and learned about their energy saving sensor machine they created to reduce the cost of energy by 30%.  From here we visited the Regional County Government, led by Dr. Violeta Vidacek-Hains. We were provided insight on Varaždin’s influence on governmental and environmental issues.

After lunch, we had the final presentations of the conference and then held the closing ceremonies of the conference.  Each of the students were awarded a certificate of participation in the conference.  It was had to believe that the week filled with conference presentations and excursions was coming to an end.

We ended the day with a visit to the Entomological Museum (Entomoloski Odjel) which has an interesting collection of butterflies and other bugs, with almost 4500 exhibits. A large portion of the collection came from the museum founder, Franjo Koscec, who donated his personal collection.
