c!ab is managed by a Management Committee formed by teachers and advisors across different discipline. With their diversified expertise, the Committee provides useful and practical support to c!ab including programme planning and professional guidance. In order to have a more refined workflow, c!ab has established five key focuses - “Arts & Culture”, “Science & Technology”, “Entrepreneurship & Management”, “Socio-Political Innovations” as well as “Design Thinking” with the support of experienced leading teachers assisted by student conveners.The advisors and conveners will hold various activities from time to time and other College students are also encouraged to initiate their own projects by submitting proposals to them through c!ab website for getting project grants and faculty resources.  

 

Facilities & Equipment

c!ab is now transformed into a completely new creative playground with partitioning and malleability. Students are encouraged to exchange ideas and have brainstorming at the discussion zone with quite a number of books for inspiration; while the Sunnies can transform their ideas into reality through conducting experiments and working on their prototypes at the heave duty workstation. 

Equipped with professional hardware including sewing machine, power drills, woodworking tools, 3Doodler, iMac, photographic equipment, multi-media software and advanced server set up, c!ab provides an ideal environment for the Sunnies to unleash their creativity and transform their vision into reality. c!ab is open 24-hour, allowing users to do brainstorming at any time.
