HKSTP RCC Fabrication Lab Visit and Training
To promote STEAM education and enrich our students’ understanding on current technology and tools deployed to make invention prototypes, 23 STEAM Team members (Robotics Team and Invention Team) were invited to visit the Fabrication Lab of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation Robotics Catalysing Centre (HKSTP RCC) on 13 February 2023.
During the visit, not only did the STEAM Team members acquire hands-on experience in using hand tools under the instruction and supervision of professional instructors, but they also learnt how laser cutter, waterjet cutter, CNC milling machine and 3D printer work for producing invention prototypes through detailed explanation and demonstration provided by the instructors of the centre. Heartfelt gratitude must be conveyed to the organization and its staff for offering such meaningful and valuable learning opportunity for our students.
