International Cuisine Day – ESC 2014

Last Tuesday (15.07) we had another edition of International Cuisine Day at Thomson Reuters office. Gathered money will be spent on upcoming English Summer Camp. Thomson Reuters is our camp partner & sponsor for over 4 years so far.

During this edition we managed to gather a big number of cooks – 28 Thomson Reuters employees volunteered to cook for children. We had both vegetarian and meat dishes, as well as cakes and desserts. The meals were from all over the world. The number of people buying was also impressive, we sold everything in half of hour and we managed to collect 1612,13 zł. The total sum will be donated to this year Camp.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this event!

Program of the English Summer Camp 2014

English Summer Camp 2014 program`s preparations are in full swing. This year we`ve decided to take up the topic of automatic control engineering and robotics. That`s why the main objective of the Camp will be to construct robots. First attempts to build a model which will be constructed by the younger and older participants of ESC 2014, have already been made. What is more, another part of our mysterious plan is to build labyrinths.

Here there are some photos from testing. Does it seem quite promising? 🙂 Please follow our profile on FB, as soon we are going to invite you for the event connected to this idea.
