OnBoard is an online platform where community members learn with each other. While various studies have shown formative assessment and immediate feedback play a key role in learning, it remains challenging to make the students' learning experience individualized. OnBoard combines the good sides of traditional classrooms and massive open online courses.
ARIS is the organization for students who are passionate about aerospace. It's ultimate goal is to bring together research, education, and industry in the field of aerospace technology to promote Swiss engineering excellence on a global stage. So far, over 70 students from ETH Zürich, HSLU and ZHAW have joined the project. The highly interdisciplinary team ...
We are three students with a passion for sports and nature (ETH, UZH & HSG). During one of our training sessions, we had the idea of combining natural energy with great taste and a lifestyle product. Our vision was to use the energy of nature to help people achieve more. We didn't need artificial ingredients to develop our Nao drinks. Nature inspired us.
Tethys wants to bring together students with a passion for underwater technology and exploration and aims to be the first Swiss team ever to participate in the 2019 MATE ROV competition. This competition is held by the Institute for Marine Advanced Technology and Education (MATE) in the USA. Its goal is to motivate students, to apply and expand their knowledge by building an underwater robot.
Precious Plastic aims to find renewed purpose for all non-recycled and non-toxic plastics waste. Our aim currently involves creating the space and machines that enable us to give a new life to non-recycled plastics. We hope to inspire you to come build with us and create plastic products. Plastic is a resource, not waste!
As rowing is a rear facing motion, athletes only see where they are coming from but not where they are going. The inability to permanently monitor the path ahead results in a large number of expensive and sometimes dangerous accidents. ROWCUS - a system comprising a proximity sensor to monitor what is ahead and a haptic feedback chest-belt, solves this problem by letting the rower intuitively feel where to go.
Our aim is to enable cheap additive manufacturing of metals and ceramics in space and sun-rich regions on earth. We are planning to build a additive manufacturing system using a parabolic mirror as energy source replacing the traditional laser. This reduces the weight and cost while increasing the efficiency of the process. One advantage is the possibility to make the parabolic mirror inflatable to further reduce weight and volume during launch.
Haigō modular furniture system aims at creating a much more intuitive and pleasant user experience by taking the advantages of modular furniture, but eliminating the need for tools or any additional fasteners when putting it together and providing a more affordable, well-designed alternative to high-end designer pieces.
Swimming is one of the technically most demanding sports. In order to effectively convert power into speed, many factors must work together in perfect harmony. And despite how many people do swimming as a sport, good feedback is difficult to find and doesn’t come cheap: Currently, swimmers have the option to either join a club or get private lessons. Both options are costly and don’t fit every swimmer’s desire for flexibility and independence.
