The Cheng Yu Tung Education Innovation Studio is a hands-on space for designing and tinkering, giving HGSE students and faculty the chance to invent and experiment with new kinds of educational experiences and technologies, and to explore the maker-based approaches now becoming common across all levels of education.
The available equipment includes hand tools, laser cutters, 3D printers, electronics workstations, and a sewing machine. Materials such as plywood, acrylic, and electronic components will be supplied to HGSE students, and there is a small library of beginner-level books on electronics, Arduino, wearable electronics, tools and other topics.
Everyone interested in using the space must complete a general orientation and safety training which grants them access to the studio and use of basic tools. Additional training is then available on the use of advanced equipment.
