Join the Library for two upcoming showcases in the Maker Hub and Idea Lab on the 1st Floor of Lauinger Library where students who have created items in the Maker Hub share their ideas and their design process!
In the Spring 2018 semester, several undergraduate and graduate course made use of the resources in the IdeaLab and Maker Hub on a regular basis, meeting weekly to experiment, build prototypes, test and iterate. Class topics ranged from air quality sensors to escape room puzzles to biologically inspired design and technology.
Join us May 3rd, from 3-6pm in the Idea Lab and Maker Hub to see what the students have created and learn about ways that the Maker Hub can support curriculum through hands-on learning.
Presenting at this show will be students and professors from:
STIA 315: International Air Quality Laboratory: Building low-cost air-quality monitoring devices.
CCTP 617: Interaction Design: Electronics and Semantics (IDEAS)
WRIT 015: Writing and Culture Seminar: Escape Room Edition
STIA 411: Living Futures: BioDesign Studio - Using biology and biotechnology to design the future
UNXD 456: 1-Credit Maker Hub Course Extension
UNXD-456 Maker Hub Extension Final Show Monday, May 7, 12:30pm-2:30pm
In Spring 2018 the Maker Hub, in Cooperation with Red House, created the UNXD-456 1 Credit Maker Hub Extension. Undergraduate and Graduate students taking any class at Georgetown were invited to enroll in UNXD-456 to make an object related to that class.
In its inaugural semester, 9 students participated in UNXD-456, working on projects ranging from cigar box guitars to virtual reality quantum models. They embraced doubt and tested assumptions, continually iterating their ideas into prototypes.
On May 7th, 12:30-2:30, these students will give their final presentations in the Maker Hub. These presentations are open to the Georgetown community, join us to see what the students have made and hear their stories.
