Visitors to Rosenthal Library’s Level 3 will notice a new display of books on Armenian Studies. These books were purchased through the generous donation of Hratch Zadoian, professor of political science and retired administrator at Queens College.

The QC Makerspace is off to a roaring start this semester. The Makerspace is part of a 5 year, multimillion dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to incorporate its project-based learning into QC’s STEM classes, in order to improve undergraduate interest and retention in STEM programs. Congratulations to Head of Makerspace Nick Normal and his co-recipients!
The Makerspace also has a new team member, Student Aide Piphat “Filmy” Cheng. Filmy is in his final year studying graduate- level Photonics (Applied Physics), and is also a remarkable photographer.
All of us at the library welcome Filmy, and look forward to a great semester of new projects and events in the Makerspace. Stop by Rosenthal 101 and learn more!
