February 1, 2019

American scientist, engineer, and television host Dr. Mike North visited Singapore January 22-23, 2019, to emcee the EmTech Asia conference. During his visit, he also taught more than 100 young inventors how to create prototypes at Science Centre Singapore.


Doc North’s “Prototyping to Make Life Even More Awesome” workshop was a huge hit with the students, who created some really fun prototypes including a foldable car, a mechanical hand, and a travel-sized hood with speakers that allows the wearer to stay dry while listening to music in wet weather. What a great showcase of creativity and innovation!
