Students
Workshops
A new cohort of young inventors & innovators has arrived! Last week, we challenged a group of students to build an invention to solve a problem they observe. Using the incredible TokyMaker kits from TokyLabs, our students assembled and programmed devices without having any background in tech or hardware. After a design thinking workshop, students began to bring their ideas to life. They worked together to write and troubleshoot their code, but in the end, they each created an invention of their own. Students could even write code from their cellphones! Inventions ranged from a laser-guided sight that prevents the user from falling asleep, to an automatic light strip that gets brighter as you approach, making it easy to unlock your door at night. After building and testing their inventions, students took the stage to give a TED-style talk about the problem they're helping people solve. We're so proud of our students and wish them success in the future! Special thanks to our partners: TokyLabs, Squiggle Labs, and Bespoke Mentors
