Imperial Festival 2015

The Sports Innovation Challenge teamed up with the Imperial College Advanced Hackspace for the 2015 Imperial Festival to provide visitors with a snapshot of the design and development process. Visitors were encourage to try out Computer aided Design software coupled with 3D printing technology, as well as try their hand at circuit building and programming in the Arduino lab. Younger visitors were encouraged to design and build crutches for a range of different characters (from Batman to Peppa Pig) whilst taking into account their characters specific user needs. During the course of the weekend teams of students took part in a hack-a-thon, working to design a new style of crutch.
