Free three-dimensional printing and open-door policy headlined Studio 231’s informational session on Monday, Jan. 31.
Rowan’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship hosted an explanatory meeting for Studio 231, the university’s first makerspace ever, this past Monday. Students who traveled to the second floor of Rohrer Business Hall were treated to an in-depth presentation on the inventive arsenal Studio 231 has to offer.
The studio’s lead supervisor, Chris Burton, discussed at length the opportunities the new makerspace facilitates. Studio 231 is filled with “resources to develop ideas and bring them to life,” and fitted with everything from a simple workbench to six 3D printers.
“We are here for school and personal projects alike,” Burton said.
No matter the degree, any Rowan student can access Studio 231. The creative collaboration room is student-ran and is staffed by four supervisors with over 10 years of collective engineering experience, leaving no project too difficult.
Burton spotlighted the Studio’s past projects, both mild and extreme. Vinyl stickers were made for selective clubs at Rowan, while a “full-body, light-up DJ suit” provided a challenging task for a personal project.
“All ideas are welcome,” Burton explained.
Studio 231 is an immersive visit for any student cultured in computer-aided drafting, electronic engineering, or mechanical engineering. Other advanced machineries featured in the studio include laser and vinyl cutters, making the creative wonderland a must-see.
Studio 231 is located next to the second-floor plaza in the Business Hall.
It is completely free for Rowan students to indulge and operates five days a week. For more information on hours and availability, check Proflink for workshops. The next workshop will be held Thursday, March 3.
