Delve Talks: Lennon Rodgers, UW Makerspace
Delve Talks is a podcast that digs into the challenges around design, product development, leadership, and innovation.
Our fourth season continues to explore how leaders help create a culture that supports innovation, especially with the stressors and new opportunities that businesses face as they adapt to the new normal in 2021 and beyond.
In this episode, co-hosts Dave Franchino and Stefanie Norvaisas spoke with Lennon Rodgers, an engineer who has worked at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the International Design Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Today he oversees an ecosystem of courses, programs, and more than 40,000 square feet of design and fabrication spaces within the University of Wisconsin College of Engineering. Lennon shared his passion for art, how maker spaces are becoming a catalyst for entrepreneurship and innovation, and what employers can expect when the next generation of engineers and tinkerers start working professionally.
