We are glad to have the support of the Pinkerton Foundation and the NIH SEPA. Through their generous support we will be able to bring the Hk Maker Lab Bio-Engineering Design and Entrepreneurship program into NYC public high schools, and continually support our students in their internships, and as they pursue college, and careers. Our vision is to create a biotech talent pipeline that is representative of the diversity of NYC.
Hk Maker Lab is a member of the NYC Science Research Mentoring Consortium
I am finishing up my first year at The Cooper Union studying architecture. I would like to say that the Hk Maker Lab program greatly informed my first year at Cooper. Having the experience of a group project helped greatly in dealing with the group project every first year architecture student at Cooper must complete. Additionally, the focus on individuals in low resource areas during Hk Maker Lab put me more in tune with issues that those in low resource areas face so I have a better idea of what people in these conditions need and how architecture can be used to address these problems.
