Every year, trainees from the region are confronted with an exciting project task as part of the learning cooperation with the Hans-Thoma-School in T.-Neustadt. This year, third-year trainees demanded a pencil sharpener that had to meet certain specifications in terms of concept, material and weight.

Kilian Brugger and Elias Müller designed a mechanical sharpener in the shape of a giant pencil with lots of inventiveness and creativity. Their considerable achievements were particularly emphasized by the specialist teachers and a jury of the friends’ association of the Hans-Thoma-School and rewarded with the first prize of the learning cooperation.

We congratulate both on their great work.
