Sandbox - open laboratoryDate of publication: 4.10.2023
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has a laboratory, the Sandbox, which is open only to first and second year students of the University of Ljubljana. The Sandbox is an open laboratory - this means that we share a common space, excellent equipment, knowledge sharing and engineering creativity.
During the week, the Sandbox hosts 𝗯𝗿𝗲𝘇𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗰̌𝗻𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗮𝗸𝘁𝗶𝗰̌𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗱𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘃𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗲, which are run by our members. Twice a year we publish 𝗿𝗿𝗮𝘇𝗽𝗶𝘀 𝘇𝗮 𝘀̌𝘁𝘂𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀𝗸𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗷𝗲𝗸𝘁𝗲, which give students the opportunity to work on their own project, develop their extra-curricular competences and have a great opportunity to try out ideas in practice. In the past academic year, projects such as: a high-speed 3D printer, a belt sander, a Toastomat, a multi-purpose multi-axis manipulator and SpaceDent - dentistry in space, among others, were carried out.
If you are interested in creative engineering pursuits, you can join us at the meeting, every 𝗰̌𝗲𝘁𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗸 𝗼𝗯 𝟭𝟰:𝟬𝟬 in the Sandbox. You can register for workshops here.
