A project can be totally yours, and even if you don’t have one, they’ll suggest you some eye- catching ideas. The full freedom to use 3D printer, power tools and even the fast WIFI is what makes it more interesting. Rather than working full day and following orders, the intern is his own boss and has full permission to follow his own plan.
