Explore Your Inner Maker
Ever had a great idea you wanted to bring to life? Dreamed of building that product you designed? Just wanted to test out some high-tech tools?
At the Larry Sears and Sally Zlotnick Sears think[box] at Case Western Reserve University, you can do just that—and we’re taking you on a tour. This seven-story, 50,000-square-foot innovation hub is the largest open-access, university-based makerspace in the world, and it’s right in our backyard.
Sears think[box] is free and open to the public throughout the year, but we’ll help you get acquainted with the 3-D printers, laser cutters, water jet cutters and even sewing and embroidery machines. Plus, we’ll show you how the famous pizza ATM—just the second of its kind in the U.S.—makes fresh-from-the-oven ’za on demand, in fewer than four minutes.
We’ll provide the food, drinks and makerspace—you bring the ideas.
