Northern College has unveiled a new Innovation Hub at its Timmins campus. The $2M facility includes an alternate energy lab that will provide students with the space to work with solar, wind, and geothermal power and hydrogen fuel cells. The hub has a 3D printing lab; welding and machine shops that feature cutting-edge technology and legacy machinery; and labs for manufacturing, prototyping, virtual reality, and mining exploration. “As a college, Northern has the applied learning environment and technical expertise to bring ideas to life,” said Northern President Audrey Penner. “When the industry has a problem, we want to be there to help them solve it. This space will help us do exactly that.” CTV News| Timmins Today| Timmins Press Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
