There is more to Baruch College than sitting through business lectures all day. The campus has been trying to foster innovation and teach technical skills to aspiring entrepreneurs and designers. MakerHub is a makerspace that welcomes Baruch students to attain experience in 3D printing, robotics, coding, and circuitry. The tech-savvy learning community is part of Baruch’s Field Center for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Center and its sole purpose is to give students more hands-on experience with their ideas involving technology, design, and entrepreneurship. Over a week ago, we brought in Bryan Britt, a 3D printing specialist, to discuss his role as a teacher. During this conversation, we learned about MakerHub’s workshops and the prospects of 3D printing— why it’s a “disruptor” and how it’s being used to tackle issues such as homelessness.
