“Hybrid” Project-Week on DIY MedTech, FabLab LU

This February 2021 we have continued with the 4th edition of our project week on Do-It-Yourself in MedTech, an interdisciplinary hands-on week in the FabLab Luzern, HSLU.

Reduced number of students on-site to keep inline with distancing regulations.

Due to the contact restrictions we have developed a hybrid format to hold the class and have experimented the use of, a virtual “gamified” and open source collaboration tool. The map was designed by dusjagr and hosted on the fablabLU github.

Throughout the week mentors were available both onsite and online to discuss project developments with the student teams and be available for questions. Regular group gatherings for input-lectures and group discussions were announced and held in a shared jitsi-room designed in the 2D virtual map.
