MakerLab draws crowds at Faculty Summer Institute 2013


The MakerLab team presented on a new approach to learning, Learning by Making, at the Faculty Summer Institute 2013. The conference attracts faculty from schools across Illinois, who are interested in new approaches in teaching and learning.  Dr. Aric Rindfleisch and Dr. Vishal Sachdev, gave an overview of the maker movement, 3D printing, the MakerLab and finished with a demonstration of 3D printing.  There was considerable interest in the new course we are proposing for Spring 2014, titled “Making Things“. This course will provide undergraduate students with the knowledge and skills to become active participants in the emerging maker economy. Specifically, this course will bring students from Business, Engineering, and Art & Design into interdisciplinary teams and teach them how to conceptualize, prototype, produce and market these products/designs.
