Stra­te­gic Part­nership with St. Peters­burg: stu­dent pro­ject pro­to­ty­pes at the Maker Fai­re Han­no­ver 2017


In the final sta­ge of the FabLab/International Design Pro­ject 2017, four inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry stu­dent teams pre­sen­ted their own pro­to­ty­pes at the Maker Fai­re Han­no­ver from 25. -27. August. This pro­ject gives Ger­man and Rus­si­an engi­nee­ring stu­dents the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work tog­e­ther to design and build a pro­to­ty­pe pro­duct of their choice and builds upon the long-stan­ding Stra­te­gic Part­nership bet­ween Leib­niz Uni­ver­si­tät Han­no­ver and Peter the Gre­at St. Peters­burg Poly­tech­nic Uni­ver­si­ty.

Lear­ning to com­mu­ni­ca­te effec­tively across lan­guages and cul­tures is cen­tral to the pro­ject. All aspec­ts of the pro­ject take place in Eng­lish and the pro­gram­me is struc­tu­red to enab­le stu­dents to deve­lop their tech­ni­cal Eng­lish skills wit­hin a rele­vant pro­fes­sio­nal con­text. Fur­ther­mo­re, it encou­ra­ges stu­dents to think crea­tively and sol­ve tech­ni­cal pro­blems quick­ly and eco­no­mi­c­al­ly. This year’s stu­dent teams desi­gned and built a glo­cken­spiel play­ed by fal­ling steel balls, a bat­te­ry elec­tric skate­board, a cock­tail mixing machi­ne and an under­wa­ter dro­ne with a came­ra.

The pro­ject is orga­nis­ed co-ope­ra­tively by Fab­Lab Poly­tech (St. Peters­burg), the Zen­trum für Didak­tik der Tech­nik (Han­no­ver) and the Fach­spra­chen­zen­trum (Han­no­ver). It is super­vi­sed by Poli­na Dyat­lo­va and Chris­to­pher Tidy, and co-ordi­na­ted by Nata­li­ya Butych from the Inter­na­tio­nal Office.
