NEWTON Project presented at AHFE 2019 by Fab Lab Madrid CEU

Fab Lab Madrid CEU’s team has presented the European Horizon 2020 NEWTON Project at the 10th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics held at Washington D.C, United States of America, on 24-28, July, 2019.

The oral presentation entitled “Opening up higher education: an e-learning program on service learning for university students” is focused on an e-service-learning program designed at Fab Lab Madrid CEU to provide students remote access to Fab Lab technologies through the NEWTON Project Platform.

The program includes activities that allow students to use the NEWTON Project platform to promote active learning and new educational approaches that improve the conventional service-learning programs, allowing students to free service-learning from geographical constraints and enabling remote access to digital fabrication tools to work with communities in need. The initiative has allowed students and faculty to experience the benefits of working collaboratively with communities in need.
