Rochester Institute of Technology students are already known for their innovation. Now, the school's taking another step.
RIT’s new Center for Student Innovation is now open. The center brings together students from a diverse group of academic programs, and the school hopes it will help cultivate the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit on campus.
“The world is eager for young people who are eager to change the world,” said teacher Jon Schull.
One student, Nathan Green, a fifth year computer science major, helped develop a keyless door entry.
“This place represents a lot of opportunities to work together with other majors, collaborate across the college boundaries. So, it's a good melting pot for all of us with new ideas to seek individuals to help us out," said Green.
The new center is housed in a new 10,000 square foot circular glass building on the RIT campus.
