Designed as a Maker Space, each Test Kitchen station featured expert “Chefs” who  guided attendees through hands-on exercises focused on practical applications of the technology featured. Together, "Chefs" and attendees explored innovative ways to use what's available at institutions to support online learning. This was an exciting space to learn, explore, and share knowledge within a lab environment.
