Go Go Gadgets! NYU Tandon Opens High-Tech Engineering Workshop

They’re really shaking up engineering class!

Downtown’s New York University Tandon School of Engineering opened its new Maker Space on Sept. 20 — a high-tech workshop with 3D printers, laser cutters, and an “earthquake machine” that allows students can simulate the affects of the natural disaster on different structures — and the brainiacs-in-training say the new-fangled gadgets will help them bring their lessons to life.
