Hi, we are conducting a challenge to ‘make’ solutions to improve cooling performance in existing residential buildings, where the solution should be implementable by the resident with minimal assistance. E.g. use electrical technician, carpenter, or completely DIY. The end result should be a tested prototype.
Would students participating in this competition be permitted to utilize your fab lab to develop their prototype, and what kind of assistance would they receive?
Hi Amanda, that is a difficult question. Fablabs set their own opening hours and service levels. So, best is to identify the fablabs nearby your students homes and aks them what is possible.
