V4Lab is a summer program for participants ages 12-16 interested in design, technology, art, science, and engineering. Offered in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science and the external,Digital Media Experience Lab, V4Lab gives students an opportunity to engage with emerging technologies in a post-secondary environment.
In summer 2018, V4Lab participants will design the City of the Future using digital modelling for augmented and virtual reality, which will merge with a physical model and autonomous robot vehicles created with Arduino-based robot kits. The final group model will be showcased to the public after the camp is over, and participants will be able to keep their autonomous vehicle after the display closes. Keep checking our website in the new year for more information and a detailed schedule.
The technical workshops will be paired with discussions on technologies, disruptive innovations, and research at Ryerson to help participants to dream of their future and contribution in Industry 4.0* and beyond.
*Industry 4.0 describes the digitization of the manufacturing sector and encompasses a range of emerging technologies forming the fourth industrial revolution.
