Creativity Lab: Semester 2

Creativity Lab: Semester 2

The School of Engineering aims to provide new opportunities for creative activities across our degree programmes. As a pilot project for new 1st year students, we have organised a number of short, self-contained activities Wednesday afternoons 2-5 pm. These will be hands-on design and build activities which provide opportunities for creativity thinking and problem solving. Examples include ‘Great egg race’ (Design of egg transfer system) and ‘Entrepreneurship challenge’ (Product design/business plan).  Look out for registration emails each week – only 20 places available for each activity.
