PREPPING FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2019
AppTech will be offered to the new Ph.D. in Humanics Program. We expect more diversity in class this school year. The classrooms were also renovated to improve the learning environment. Also, a new room (4F-308) will be available for class activities like workshop and prototype construction.
The class have also prepared some equipment and tools to make the design and construction of prototypes much easier. These include solar-powered devices, drones, Arduino computer with basic sensors, drinking water filter, and thermo-generator among others. A 3-D printer will also be available for the student’s usage. We hope to build more exciting projects this school year!
Demo Day was held last December 8, 2018
Students this year presented their output. They also shared what they have experienced throughout the course along with some specialty foods and drinks from Nagano Prefecture and Vanuatu. There was product demo session and poster presentations.
