presented by Alex Bandar, Ph.D.
Bandar will discuss the democratization of innovation, as observed from his role as director of the Columbus Idea Foundry, a community workshop space, also called a hackershop or makerspace. At the CIF, “makers” of all types — from scientists to designers and more — cross-pollinate ideas to bring to fruition the next generation of products, art projects, and innovations. Workshops such as the CIF represent an exciting new model of empowering nearly anyone with the tools to bring their idea to reality.
