Void-Deck Technology Labs

We pair participants' inquisitiveness with exposure to new technology and methods to think creatively about innovation. Through group work and hands-on learning, they gain confidence to explore the fields of technology and science independently.

There are 2 cores to the program - the Science Core and the Technology Core.

Each core consists of 6 modules and will last over a period of 8 weeks. Each module is standalone and no prior knowledge will be required for any (i.e. no module sequencing is required).
