ITS Seeks Name for Innovation/Makerspace Lab

by Davidson College

ITS is preparing to open our new campus Innovation/Makerspace lab and we can't wait to show you what's in store. This is the space for you if you want to:

  • Print in 3D
  • Learn to fly a quadcopter/drone
  • Build and program a robot
  • Learn to code for OS X, Windows, iOS, Android or Linux
  • Create wearable computing devices
  • Learn how to make a stop-motion movie
  • Just plain tinker with technology

But we are still missing one thing: A name! We are looking to give this new venture a name that captures its purposes – showcasing cutting edge technologies, experimentation and collaboration. Students, faculty and staff are invited to submit name suggestions to Brian Little or Mur Muchane by noon on Thursday, Oct. 10. Multiple entries are okay. Please see Inside Davidson (login required) to learn more about a gift for the winning name.

We welcome your participation and encourage you to contact Brian Little or Mur Muchane with your thoughts and questions.
