    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.

    Event Details:

    6-6:30 p.m.: Tour of Sears think[box] (5:30 p.m. tour may be added if needed)

    6:30-7:30 p.m.: Refreshments and networking on the Case Western Reserve campus
