What is the Hk Maker Lab? The Hk Maker Lab is an intensive six-week summer program to learn the foundations of design. Focusing on addressing a health problem, participants will design, prototype, and test a biomedical device and develop an associated business plan. The program will culminate in a presentation to leading executives from the biomedical community. The Hk Maker Lab projects might then be incubated using the state-of-the-art facilities at Harlem Biospace. HK Maker Lab students will participate in SHAPE and then continue with learning about the design process.
We anticipate this program will attract extremely motivated students, who will gain incredible “Maker” skills after this intense curriculum and who will, in turn, become student leaders of such programs in their college work.
Hear what some past students had to say about their Hk Maker Lab experience in the video slideshow above.
