MakerSpace Fuels Creativity
CSU’s Dan T. Moore MakerSpace is officially open for business, enhancing Engaged Learning opportunities and helping produce “Ready-to-Go” engineers to meet industry needs.
The 6,400-square-foot MakerSpace in the Washkewicz College of Engineering features state-of-the-art prototyping, design and fabrication technology to assist students in transforming their ideas into practical applications. The space houses high-resolution 3D printers and scanners, computer-aided manufacturing equipment, digital fabrication tools, laser engraving and cutting machines, and tools for testing and designing electronic devices.
The innovative space was made possible by a generous donation from Dan T. Moore, a member of the CSU board of trustees since 2008. An industrialist and entrepreneur, he has been starting businesses as president of the Dan T. Moore Co. since 1979. He currently serves as chairman of eight companies, each with its own proprietary edge.
“It is my hope that this MakerSpace will fuel a culture of creativity and entrepreneurship that pervades the entire CSU campus,” says Moore.
We danced with a star, engaged with a basketball legend, laughed with a cartoonist and spaced out with an astrophysicist. And in 2019, we’ll do it all again with an exciting lineup of guests.
The second-annual Arts and Humanities Alive! (AHA!) Festival, sponsored by CSU and Playhouse Square, attracted sold-out audiences for nearly 20 events, with some 5,000 attendees eager to immerse themselves in books, theater, music, art, dance and ideas.
The third-annual AHA! Festival, made possible by a generous gift from former Clevelanders Myra and Darwin Smith, is planned for June 2019. Don’t miss out! Details will be posted at ahacsu.com as they become available.
