An offering with a pre-selection process
Participants will be organized in teams where they will apply the basics of design skills, problem-solving, and workshop skills to make a prototype of a device of their selection. The devices should follow the general theme of the WEP 2020 program: “Personalized Medicine.”
During this course, participants will acquire hands-on experience in product research, design, building, and making a prototype, and delivering on a limited time, schedule, and budget.
Each team will have a $500 budget for them to work. The teams can spend the budget on inventory or materials to make their prototypes at the Prototyping Core Lab, or for other expenses and purchases.
The course will begin by introducing the general objective and target. Then, participants will be trained on using the basic prototyping tools and equipment available at the Prototyping Core Lab. Including; laser cutters, 3D printers, water jet, 3D modeling, and others. The participating team will have technical support and assistance from the team at the Prototyping Core Lab, but they are expected to do most of the work themselves.
To be considered for participation in this workshop
Each team/participant has to “pitch” an idea. The proposed ideas must intend to solve a problem for a medical case or need. During this course, the teams will come up with a design to address the medical need of the case or customize a solution for an individual user.
Provide the pitch through this online registration form - Group B.
The proposed ideas will be evaluated by the organizing team to select participants based on the following criteria:
o Creativity: extra points for creative ideas
o Difficulty: extra points for challenging ideas
o Achievability: Ideas must be realistic and achieved within the short timeline of the course
o Members: whether a group is already formed
o Skills: Individual skills (e.g., 3D modeling, electronics, etc.)
