It was always envisioned that The Kendeda Building would host a makerspace. In 2022, we finally made it happen! Kendeda Building staff worked with the Colleges of Design, Engineering, and Biology, the Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems, and the student-led Invention Studio to secure funding, purchase hardware, and staff the Bio-Inspired Makerspace.
This makerspace furthers four Living Building goals:
- Taking inspiration from nature
- Recycling used models into new filament
- Operating with lower energy consumption
- Serving as an equitable space open to anyone affiliated with Georgia Tech
