We met the instructors, Ella and Tom. We were congratulated for joining the course, since it demanded dedication of our time, but at the same time assured that it would be worthwhile since we would learn important team skills, as well as the ability to use advanced tools such as CAD software, the laser cutter and the CNC machine (shopbot) within the FabLab.
Participants in the course got to meet each other, and after a short introduction, we brainstormed the concepts we wanted to materialize. A common theme within the teams was sustainability and better living. Many of the projects aim to conserve energy or natural resources.
Instruction would begin Monday 11th July and end Friday 22nd July (which would involve a final presentation)
