For this week’s Maker Monday, we are highlighting Gavin Gibson ‘25 and his Quad chair repair project!


Demonstrating “Care for Our Common Home,” Gavin recognized the issue of broken lawn chairs in the Quad and kickstarted a new plan to start repairing them. This project perfectly encapsulates the Maker Lab’s mission to help the community while developing students’ engineering skills!

If you see the “Maker Lab Repaired” mark on any chairs in the Quad, remember that we gave it a second life!
