Cornell Make is a student organization dedicated to spreading the maker movement across the Cornell campus.
We provide students the tools, spaces, and human capital to pursue their ideas while fostering meaningful connections between makers.
In early 2014, I began developing a web platform to facilitate connections between Cornell students to work on personal projects.
The platform transitioned into a full-fledged campus initiative called Cornell Make, adopted as a portfolio company under Life Changing Labs.
During the site's development, I worked with Prof. David Schneider of the System's Engineering department to found a maker-space in his Carpenter Lab.
This transitioned into a wider initiative as I acquired a team of ambitious students eager to help me unify the efforts of every maker organization on the Cornell campus.
We are now a team of students, staff, and faculty divided across multiple teams: events, operations, marketing, and web development.
We call ourselves CornellMake - a cross-campus initiative to promote making and innovation within the Cornell community.
