June 22nd, 2016 § Comments Off on New Intern Yu Liu § permalink
My name is Yu Liu and I will be a rising junior at the University of Florida this coming fall. I am majoring in Electrical Engineering and I will be interning at XinCheJian from June 20th to August 14th. I hope to gain experience in electronic designs and learn as much as I can these next few weeks. As an intern here at XinCheJian, I will be keeping the space clean and organized, helping out with workshops, marketing the site, and assisting staff while also working on my own project.
I will be working on an electronic skateboard project with Dooho (another intern). We were generously provided a board from Eduardo and will be trying to implement a lightweight, yet effective design. We will also be helping Eduardo out with a light sensing robot that he will be showcasing at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai. We will be learning how to build the small robot and then we will be teaching 14-18 year olds at the MWC event where there will be over 70,000 attendees and 8000 companies.
Here’s to a great 8 weeks!

Intro to Design Thinking for Makers:
Innovative companies, and inventors in general, don’t just come up with new product ideas out of thin air. They used problem-solving methods, such as “design thinking” to establish competitive advantage. These methods focus on listening to user needs, empathy, logical and creative thinking, collaboration, and experimentation. Design thinking methods can be applied in any field, and even in personal life, and can go a long way in helping makers create products that solve real needs.
This intensive hands-on workshop will go through all the steps of the design process, but will spend most of the time on tools and methods to build empathy for the users, as this crucial first step often proves to be challenging in certain contexts (cultural and mindset)
This workshop can help you:
· become a better innovator
· learn which questions can lead to uncovering hidden needs
· solve complex challenges at work or in life
· combine creativity and innovation with logic and analysis
· become a better collaborator
What to expect:
This will be an intensive hands-on workshop that goes through the whole design thinking process and helps you learn-by-doing. You won’t be sitting, listening to a boring lecture, but getting your hands dirty and interacting with each other right from the beginning.
Who should enroll:
This workshop is ideal for not only makers interested into turning their ideas into real products or services but also professionals from any industry that are interested in learning new approaches to problem solving.
