U.S. Ambassador David D. Pearce had the opportunity to stop by theAthens Science Festival and visit Dimitris Hatzis, the youngest person to ever build a 3D printed, life-sized, humanoid robot, which he calls ‘Troopy’.
This was the perfect opportunity for Ambassador to also congratulate young Dimitris from Kavala for being admitted to the MIT Launchprogram. MIT Launch is a unique program that brings together high school students from all over the U.S. and world each summer to MIT campus to become entrepreneurs in a 4-week program. This experience connects students to many of the best entrepreneurial networks and leaders across campus for instruction and best practices, engraining them in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) culture of Mens et Manus – mind and hand.
