YSU, Butler to Preview Launch Lab June 13

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Youngstown State University’s newest innovation space, Launch Lab, will be open to the public for a sneak preview, 2-3 p.m., June 13. The lab is housed in the Butler Institute of American Art, 524 Wick Ave.

Launch Lab is a collaboration between YSU’s College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and the YSU College of Creative Arts and Communication. Using cutting edge technologies, Launch Lab users are able to scan 3-D objects, create digital models and print them as working, physical objects.

The event is part of Northeast Ohio Hour of Making, when sites across the region will open their doors to the public. The Hour of Making is part of the National Week of Making and showcases regional “maker” activities that empower students, faculty and the broader public to imagine, innovate and bring ideas to life.

Guests should enter through the main entrance of the Butler Institute and follow the signs to the Launch Lab event. Parking is available across the street in the Wick Avenue deck.
