“Mr. Edison, please tell me what lab rules you would like to observe.” – M.A. Rosenoff
“There ain’t no rules around here. We’re trying to accomplish something.” – Thomas Edison
These bold words are emblazoned on the walls of the new MakerSpace at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and perfectly capture the spirit of this exciting new lab and workspace. NYU Tandon School of Engineering is celebrating the grand opening of their new MakerSpace with a ribbon cutting ceremony today, September 20th, 2016. The Grand Opening is part of Inauguration Celebration Week being held in honor of the inauguration of Andrew D. Hamilton, NYU's 16th President.
NYU President Andrew Hamilton, Katepalli R. Sreenivasan, Dean of the School of Engineering, and benefactor and Trustee Chandrika Krishnamurthy Tandon officially open the new MakerSpace on Tuesday, September 20th, 2016
The new Tandon School of Engineering MakerSpace has accomplished much already. This collaborative workspace and lab was made possible by a $100 million gift from Chandrika and Ranjan Tandon and will provide a resource for students, faculty, incubator companies and K-12 STEM programs. The School of Engineering's MakerSpace offers state-of-the-art tools such as Stratasys 3D Printers, Epilog Laser Engravers, milling machines and advanced software, as well as integrated manufacturing facilities. All of this adds up to a stimulating new MakerSpace that will reinvent learning and foster innovators and entrepreneurs while connecting Makers with each other and the growing tech and engineering scene within New York City and abroad.
