Ohio State Higher Ed Partnership Focuses on "Innovate-o-Thon"
An article in Industry Today features two manufacturing-focused centers at OhioState. As part of the Ohio Department of Higher Education Ohio Means Internships & Co-ops Program, Ohio Manufacturing Institute teamed up with the Institute for Materials Research to expand their INNOVATE-o-Thon events and classes at the new Materials Innovation Lab (MIL). The program recruits students from Ohio State, Marion Technical College, Central Ohio Technical College and Columbus State Community College, in part to increase the diversity of students participating in the externships. In this program, Ohio companies propose real-world materials and manufacturing problems or themes, solved by teams of college students over 48-hour weekend brainstorming sessions.
