Abington debuts maker space/innovation hub

Penn State Abington LaunchBox at the Abington Art Center intentionally blurs the boundaries between analog and digital, art and science, traditional and experimental. Computers, laser and vinyl cutters, and 3D printers live side-by-side with sewing machines, saws, and tools of all description.
