Mentor & Peer Engagements

Post Residency Mentorship (1:1) - 10 Hours

The designing of a solution is just the beginining. Each maker project needs multiple iterations and inputs before the solution becomes physically viable. That’s where mentor come in. Post residency each talent will have access to a mentor and the team at Maker’s Asylum to help iterate, document and test solutions in the real world. We also help you document this journey so it becomes your personal story. 

Format : Online

Meet-ups (Group) - 10 Hours

What makes this program different?

No Classroom

Instead, we have a hybrid experiential learning format that focusses on hands on learning and personalised self pace approach to learning. 

No Lectures

Instead, we have projects. The talents work with an instructor in each skill to understand the basics and also acquire enough knowledge to have a guided working on their own project

No Grades

Instead, we have portfolios that document talents’ problem solving capabilities & decisions and showcases their final solutions.
