Showcase: Trials, Errors and Surprises

Home » Showcase: Trials, Errors and Surprises
Date: 13 March 2019
Time: 5 pm
Venue: W-B106 MA Design Studio at Winstedt

This series of workshop provided us with the fundamentals on merging design, programming, electronics and prototyping. With an engineering background, I had experience with coding and hardware during my undergraduate years. These workshops gave us the opportunity to incorporate “sensing” (data collection, user testing), “coding” (JavaScript, C/C++) and “making” (circuitry, prototyping, laser cutting).

With my classmates and Andreas

I really enjoyed myself in this 10-week workshop with Andreas. The weekly exercises were fun and really gave us the opportunity to explore different techniques and methods. Now that the workshop is over, I think it’s time to put more time into my research project. With new skills acquired from this workshop, it would be interesting to explore how I can incorporate some of these newfound knowledge to my project.
