Making Illinois: Neil Pearse, Shop Manager

Episode 3: Neil Pearse leads the team at The Shop, making making more accessible to the campus community.

Making Illinois is a three-part video series documenting our journey across campus to meet makers and learn more about their shops and the way that they work.

At the foundation of the Siebel Center for Design is The Shop, a hub containing tools, resources, and training for aspiring makers. Shop manager Neil Pearse gives a tour of the space and shares the ethos of making at The Shop, followed by health technology graduate student Ben Hardin, who repairs the medical training device he developed in The Shop.
