Nearing the end of the busy Fall 2016 quarter, The Garage Resident Teams took a well-deserved break from normal Family Dinner programming to enjoy some social time. At this week's Family Dinner, Residents were invited to bring a friend to The Garage to learn about its offerings, check out the space, and ask questions - and enjoy some Chipotle chips + guac and burritos. Residents showed off their prototypes and working spaces to their friends and even participated in some VR/AR demos in The Garage's state-of-the-art Makerspace, exclusively available to Resident Teams.The Garage Resident Teams have accomplished a lot during the Fall quarter at Northwestern, from being featured in the press and participating in pitch competitions to prototyping innovative ideas and bringing their products to market.
