I read your post with interest Stacey, as I have heard other students mention it but wasn’t really sure what it actually was. I am ashamed to say I didn’t realise we had anything like this locally. I think it s a great idea, but probably not something I’d used at this time. It was interesting to read about the induction costs, which whilst understandable would preclude some people from using the facilities. Your idea for the inclusion of some of the works produced is an excellent idea as I feel it would encourage increased use, particularly amongst those of us who are visual people. I also agree that SLQ is in the ideal position to reduce the gender discrepancy  in STEM, and could perhaps run special events during thee Girls in Science and Engineering weeks, with special events for school girls at the Edge.
