On Friday, October 27th, our sixth Brown Bag lecture of the Fall 2017 semester showcased some of the incredible projects being created in the TCNJ Makerspace by makers of all skill levels. The Department of Interactive Multimedia and its partners have been working to develop and expand TCNJ’s makerspace to introduce a wider variety of applications and increase its accessibility to students. John Kuiphoff, Associate Professor in the Department of Interactive Multimedia, demonstrated how anything from keychains to clocks to personalized laptop stands can be built with the help of technology like laser cutters and 3D printers. TCNJ’s makerspace, located in the AIMM building, fosters a collaborative environment that embraces cross-disciplinary interaction, community outreach and entrepreneurship. Professor Kuiphoff emphasized the interdisciplinary nature of making and suggested that all students, regardless of their major or experience with this technology, can discover a way to create something that combines their interests with the innovative technology available in the makerspace.
