WALL TOWNSHIP — The fusion of two volunteer-run programs at InfoAge Science and History Learning Center will provide teens and adults with a space where they can express their creativity while getting more hands-on experience building and experimenting.
On Saturday, Jan. 5, the Computer Deconstruction Laboratory [CDL], located in Building 9059 at InfoAge, 2201 Marconi Road, was reopened as a new nonprofit organization operating both the makerspace and podcast studio at InfoAge, according to officials.
“The two programs CDL and IXR [Institute for Exploratory Research] were basically programs operated by InfoAge … and now we are going to take the two programs, break them out from InfoAge, and stand them up on their own as their own nonprofit corporation,” said volunteer Martin Flynn.
“One of the things we are trying to do is provide a safe learning environment for kids where they can come and learn from an adult who can guide them,” he said.
