The My Lab Idea ⚡️

The My Lab Idea is an initiative offered by MITA through the MITA Emerging Technologies Lab, run by the Digital Outreach (DO) team.

It's available to all students over 16 years of age - to help with academic projects such as dissertations and assignments related to emerging technologies.

The Lab is situated at the MITA Head Office in Blata l-Bajda - the space, equipment & materials are all free to use. If needed, equipment may also be taken outside the premises.

Equipment & material available for students is also not limited to what is at hand - so if new resources are needed to complete a My Lab Idea, MITA can consider investing in the project by procuring what is required. This is done on a case by case basis.

Through the DO team, MITA can also help with suggestions on how to best make use of the various equipment & technologies available at the Lab. IP rights belong to the student.

List of available equipment:

Virtual & Mixed reality headsets

Augmented reality headset

I Can 3D Print...Anything? 🤯

I mean there's a size limit, but yeah pretty much! In MITA's Lab, you'll get full access to their 3D printer, as well as virtual & augmented reality sets. Have your own software you need to test out? You can test it alongside the guidance of their expert staff.

As for the workspace itself, it's very modern & comfortable, there's a chill sofa area where you can sit and work with your friends - it's a super cool environment for budding techies.

Assignment & Dissertation Life Savers 😍

Need to create a model? Have a particular assignment with a lot of moving parts? Not only can you make use of all MITA's devices for free - but you get to speak to people with a passion for their field who've been through their fair share of Uni stress too!

In other words, you'll get top-level insight from people who were most probably in your exact classroom a few years back - super helpful for getting advice & possibly learning about the field you'll be working within in the near future 😇
