Previous Events

AI x Biotech Summer Fest

The AI x Biotech Summer Fest was a two-day event where students experienced the latest developments in AI technology through a workshop by DeepAI, a leading startup AI company in San Francisco. In addition, students also learned how to build their own soil moisture sensor and explore electronics, sensors, and programming by competing in a hardware relay.

Highlander Engineering Pet Workshop!

We invited high school students to join us for an exciting web development workshop where they learned how to build a pet-themed Pomodoro timer! Participants also had the opportunity to interact with therapy dogs, who provided a calm and supportive presence throughout the entire workshop.

Highlander Engineering Spooky Workshop!

This thrilling workshop gave students the opportunity to use Arduino hardware and circuitry, such as motion sensors and voice modules, to create a jumpscare device!
