Innovation Week: Sears think[box]: More than a Makerspace

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to attend an Innovation Week session to hear from faculty, staff and students who are using Sears think[box] to make ideas become a reality. The free, public event will take place from 2 to 3:50 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27, on the first floor of Sears think[box].

Housed in an iconic seven-story, 50,000-square-foot facility, Sears think[box] is an innovation center, makerspace and entrepreneurship ecosystem that welcomes thousands of visitors each month. Sears think[box] brings together resources for venture creation and entrepreneurship under one roof. Whether you’re looking for prototyping and fabrication equipment, space to brainstorm, legal and business support to commercialize intellectual property, or guidance to create market-ready products with real-world impact, our team at think[box] can help. 

This session, moderated by Tiffany McNamara, senior director of strategic partnerships and business development for Sears think[box], will include representatives on topics such as:

  • think[box] as a living lab and satellite office for a CWRU institute;
  • 3D scanning and printing in the conservation and study of art;
  • Immersive learning through the integration of think[box] into architecture courses; and
  • think[box] as a launchpoint for community outreach projects.

Plus, individuals from the following companies will share insights:

  • Faculty startup company RoadPrintz; and
  • Student startups CLEANR Inc. and 3D Music Inc.
