Kicking off our prototyping month with an amazing Arduino workshop

September 16 was our first workshop of the Prototyping Month. We kicked off our series of exciting and amazing prototyping workshops with an introduction to Arduino workshop, hosted by Patent Pending, PolyBots, and IEEE. Students learned the basics of the Arduino programmable microcontroller and used a photoresistor to control the tone produced by a piezo speaker based on the intensity of the light on the sensor, learning to interface hardware with software to make a cool demo.

We also announced our Master Prototyper challenge.  #NYUPROTOTYPING on Instagram and get a chance to become our top 3 master prorotype with fame and T-shirt!


Looking forward to see you on our next Prototyping workshop: Arduino Advanced Workshop on next Tuesday Sep 23.

The Prototyping Fund is right down the corner


241536_230381673756384_1537421048_o-660x495Today was a busy day for innovators and entrepreneurs of all sorts at NYU. We were kicking of the Fall Greenhouse Prototyping Month  with an amazing Arduino Workshop in Brooklyn while the Leslie e-lab in Washington Square was officially opening its doors.

This is the perfect day for officially announcing that the applications for Fall 2014 Prototyping Fund are open.  The Prototyping Fund is a collaborative program offered by the Greenhouse and the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute.

Students are eligible to receive up to $500 in funding to be used to build a hardware or software prototype. These prototypes should help you articulate and test your assumptions and move to the next stage of product development.

Make sure to attend our Prototyping workshops to stretch your prototyping, collaborative and creative muscles (yes all of them together!) and put together great proposals to submit by October 10.

IVY Innovator Award for Design, Presented by Cadillac

Design transforms our experience and perception of the world, distilling the complexity around us into its most irreducible and elegant forms. To celebrate the power of good design, it is our great privilege to invite you to apply for the 2014 Ivy Innovator Award for Design, presented by Cadillac. We’ve created this award to showcase and support the next generation of leading minds in the field, and you can learn more and apply for an award in 3-5 minutes via this link.

The winner will be honored at the Ivy Innovator Design Series and will receive a travel package (approximately $5,000 value) that provides access to a Cadillac hosted event taking place during Miami Art Basel. We will also select 5 finalists who will be showcased to the IVY Community and who will receive admission to the Cadillac brand advocacy platform, which provides access to complimentary Cadillac loaner vehicles, tickets to upcoming events from Cadillac partners, as well as a range of other special benefits. The innovative endeavors of all finalists will also be promoted in press materials related to the competition.

We encourage all innovative individuals involved in any aspect of design to apply, regardless of their stage of progress. Our Selection Committee will evaluate applicants based on their potential to impact the field of design, the expansiveness of their personal vision, and the creativity and uniqueness of their projects. Please also pass this along to any friends who are up and coming innovators in design. We look forward to reviewing your application and hosting you at the upcoming Ivy Innovator Design Series, presented by Cadillac!

Where collaboration is born and ideas are nurtured.
