The Idea Shop is Moving

This semester the Idea Shop is moving from the Technology Business Center into IIT Tower.

The move will happen in two phases:

  • The Prototyping Lab will move around spring break (the week of March 13).
  • The Idea Shop classroom spaces will move after IPRO Day (April 21).

As a result the Prototyping Lab will close on Friday, March 3 and will not reopen until Monday, March 27. We have planned this move so that the lab can re-open for the last few weeks of the semester. Since this timeline is contingent on construction, an updated calendar of hours can be found at
