In september '16, BEST Brussels organised their latest seasonal course, called 'Build a bridge, get over it!'. It was about, you guessed it, building bridges! Twenty-two enthousiast students from all around Europe joined our courses to first learn about the technical part and eventually build and test their own bridge.
But it wasn't only about bridges, it was also about building friendships a creating life-lasting memories together (and ofcourse having loads of fun!).
At arrival day, we played some get-to-knowgames so everyone got comfortable in the group. The following five days, the participants participated in the official opening, the classes, the practicums, the final test and the party's. During the last two days, we explored Brussels and Gent. No point in coming to Belgium if you can't enjoy some of it! We did pub crawl's, a Brussels rally and so much more.
After eight days of intense participation and collaboration, everyone went home, exhausted but satisfied. New friendships were made and new cultures were explored, and that's what BEST is all about after all!
