Carrina Dong,   Mechanical Engineering  Undergrad   Senior   "The CoLab provides an awesome space for rapid protot yping! I think rapid prototyping is really transforming mechanical design as it allows for a more iterative design process. Proof of concepts can be made in less than a day using a 3D printer or a laser cutter, and it's really useful to be able to test your designs with a cheap, e  asy, and quick prototype before committing to machining it. Both the laser cutter and 3D printer have been immensely helpful for my projects, whether I need to prototype a design or I just need a quick low fidelity part as soon as possible."

Jesse Hu, Computer Science undergrad student  "I am extremely happy about the turnout of the event. Students were asking us since Spring when registration would start, and we wish we could have had all 3000 registrants here. We are glad to be able to have an impact on Duke and the broader community, and bridge the gap between ideation and implementation. Huge shoutout to the entire organizing team for doing an awesome job!"

Alex Zhou,   Masters in Engineering Management     "I am building an MVP to help predict the perfect gift for your friends and family using Pinterest and Amazon's APIs. I honestly had absolutely no idea how to build it. I barely have any academic training in computer programming. Jason from CoLab was super amazing in helping me turn my ideas into reality. He coached me and gave me the tools I needed to make it happen. The program turned out to be a great success!"
