The HCIL Hackerspace, started by Computer Science Assistant Professor Jon Froehlich in 2012, is a space to inspire creativity and excitement, attract a diverse set of students, and allow students to experiment, play, learn, and invent through rapid prototyping and collaboration. He says the environment “encourages serendipitous interaction.”
