Innovating by doing

The IN2 Makerspace is an interactive do-it-yourself workspace with tools, machines and technology to transform that great idea into a physical prototype and reflects the evolving collaborative, cross-sector and high-tech nature of innovation. IN2’s Makerspace manager and a team of trained IMSA students – the Makersquad – are on hand to guide the next generation of discoverers, creators and thinkers through the various maker methods.
