Experiment with Innovation


Explore new and emerging technology topics and develop skills through hands-on challenges that will help prepare your for the future


What do you mean by “experiment”?


By Experiment, we mean “to try something in order to discover what it is like or find out more about it”. In the Skills Lab we help you to do this through 1-2 day hands-on workshops, led by Mentors and Experts from the HighTechU Community, where you can explore existing and emerging technology related topics and problems like:

  • Web Development
  • Data Analytics
  • Quantum Computing

How does it work?


Guided by University Mentors, and supported by Industry Experts, you’ll join us on Zoom to explore innovative technology topics through skills-based, hands-on activities and challenges.
