The Fulton Schools Residential Community at Tooker House is a seven-story, 1,600-person, co-ed living and learning community designed specifically for undergraduate students in ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
The “dorm built for engineers” features on-site digital classrooms, state-of-the-art makerspaces complete with 3D printers, and laser cutters and soldering tools needed for a broad range of engineering courses and projects. Tooker House is fully Wi-Fi accessible with enough bandwidth to accommodate four devices per resident.
Students at Arizona State University this year are taking part in a first-of-its- kind immersive voice technology program on a university campus, with support from the Amazon Alexa team. As part of the project, students moving into Tooker House will have a new Amazon Echo Dot and become part of the first voice- enabled, learning-enhanced residential community on a university campus.
Situated in a prominent location on the ground floor of the building, the maker lab allows students to work on class projects and explore ideas steps away from their living suites – essentially in their living room. The lab features sliding glass walls that encourage activities to spill outdoors, where exhibition pedestals enable students to present their work and invite discussion and feedback.
