As part of the University’s goal to drive commercialization forward, a portion of the forthcoming Quinn Hall building of Innovation Park has been designated as a ‘Maker Space.’ Consider it an indoor field of dreams where ideas come to life. In this collaborative entrepreneurial environment, concepts will evolve into hard-scale prototypes.
The Maker Space will offer a comprehensive set of hand tools and 3D printers with which to build a basic tangible device. This will allow users to see how their model will eventually look, function and feel. Plastic, acrylic or nylon 3D printers will be available. It will be available to all students and faculty, as well as alumni and individuals outside of the University.
