STEAM labs and art gallery to share space in Bettendorf

A former science teacher and a local artist have teamed up to bring an innovation hub to the former Foster Family Music Center building on State Street in Bettendorf.

Pat Bereskin, owner of Bereskin Gallery & Art Academy, and Aaron Maurer, who spent 13 years teaching in various fields at Bettendorf Middle School, see their shared space, scheduled to be unveiled next week, as the ultimate mix of art and science.

Along with Bereskin’s art gallery on the first floor, the 8,000-square-foot property houses 212 STEAM Labs, a new nonprofit offering science, technology, engineering, arts and math, or STEAM, classes for preschool, elementary and middle school-aged students. The new nonprofit was founded by Maurer, who now serves as the STEAM lead for the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency, which serves 21 eastern Iowa school districts. 

Maurer considers 212 STEAM Labs “a vision that is coming to life.” Its name, he said, comes from this idea: “At 211 degrees, water is hot. But at 212, it begins to boil.”

“Our tagline is one degree of separation, so that means we want to be able to push and expose kids to things they haven’t thought of before,” he said. “So many kids don’t know what they want to do, and that’s OK, but are we providing them enough places to explore that?”

Students will soon be able to explore topics such as ancient engineering, 3D printing, coding and silkscreen printing via interactive classes, which kick off Sept. 7. 

Maurer said he hopes to fill the gap in what “schools just don’t have enough time to do in eight hours.” 

“We can say, ‘Here’s robotics, sewing, coding and a whole gauntlet of things,’ and if something sticks, we can help them develop that,” he said. “They can figure out what’s going to be a successful path for them as opposed to waiting until high school or college.”

Maurer is all for starting early. 

“One of my missions is by the eighth grade, they should be employable,” Maurer said. “If we can inspire them at a younger age, it gives them more possibilities to craft who they want to be.” 

As for the “A” in STEAM? That’s where Bereskin comes in.

She moved her art gallery, which showcases her own work and exhibits from area artists, from its home at the Bucktown Center for the Arts, Davenport, where Bereskin has been for four years, to the property on State Street.

Bereskin, 61, who studied elementary education at the University of Northern Iowa, has taught art classes for 27 years out of her house and later her gallery. She currently teaches about 160 students. 

Bereskin said she will miss her former studio space in downtown Davenport, but she’s ready to realize “larger goals and aspirations.” 

“My whole life has been dedicated to art and working with kids and sometimes marrying what I do with the community,” she said. “Legacy is a really good word for this. In the next 30 years, I want to make time to bring up the next generation of artists. That’s our goal.”

The building, owned by Vizient Properties LLC, had been empty since December 2014, when Foster Family Music Center closed.

“It’s a concept where you’re bringing the arts and education together; it’s nice to bring that downtown,” Jeff Reiter, Bettendorf economic development director, said. “There are some unique features you don’t see in many communities.”

As Maurer said, next week’s grand opening is only the beginning. 

“Everything we do we want to have a connection to the community,” he said. “There are tons of possibilities once we get rocking and rolling.”

How to prevent 3-D printing hacks? Install secret flaws and share the decoder ring NYU Tandon …

BROOKLYN, New York – Additive manufacturing (AM), also called 3D printing, is growing fast. Worldwide, the AM market grew nearly 26 percent to more than $5 billion last year, versus 2015, and another 17.4 percent this year versus last. The rapid prototyping market alone is expected to reach $5 billion by 2020.

But since the global supply chain for AM requires companies to share computer aided design (CAD) files within the organization or with outside parties via email or cloud, intellectual-property thieves and malefactors have many opportunities to filch a manufacturer’s design files to produce counterfeit parts.

A group of researchers at NYU Tandon School of Engineering has discovered ways for manufacturers to turn the tables on thieves by deliberately embedding hidden flaws in CAD files to thwart intellectual property theft. In a new study published in Materials and Design, noted materials researcher Nikhil Gupta, an associate professor of mechanical engineering, his doctoral student Fei Chen and former student Gary Mac show how certain intentionally induced defects can disappear when the part is printed under a very specific set of conditions. Those without the information needed to process the files correctly — such as parties with stolen CAD models — would print a part with undesired defects and, consequently, lower quality.

The AM process involves several steps from CAD file to printed product. One step involves translating the CAD design into a stereo-lithography (STL) file format, which maps objects and their internal and external features as triangles and vectors. The researchers explored how this and other aspects of CAD-to-printer processing, such as STL file resolution, printing direction and printer resolution activated or neutralized the intentionally embedded flaws. The team developed security features that can range from the induction of voids in a part that is supposed to be solid to features that make the part print in sections that break off easily.

“The range of security feature designs demonstrated in this work can provide great flexibility to application engineers in terms of how to disguise these flaws easily in a complex shaped part,” said Chen. “Most industrial components manufactured using 3D printing have complex designs to justify the use of 3D printing, which further helps in embedding these features without detection.”

The purposeful manufacturing flaws demonstrated in this work range from two-dimensional features to three-dimensional shapes that can be hidden inside the part. One CAD model appears to have a sphere inside a rectangular block. However, the block prints without the spherical feature if the processing is conducted under the correct set of parameters, while incorrect processing creates a void in the block.

Gupta and other researchers at NYU, in a study in the May 2016 issue of JOM, The Journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society, demonstrated that defects inserted in 3D printed components can be so small that they can avoid detection by commonly used imaging techniques but can nonetheless affect the performance. Among publisher Springer’s portfolio of over 245 engineering journals, the article was the most cited, downloaded and shared last year.

So far, the main ways designers have secured CAD files is with cybersecurity tools such as encryption and password protection and by limiting access to important files. Gupta explained that “cybersecurity tools can be applied as usual to make the files and cloud secure; however, in case the design files are stolen, there is nothing in the designs to deter printing a high-quality component. The new approach is designed to provide an advantage in this scenario and to make printing high-quality parts from stolen files difficult.”

The study, which will appear in print in the journal Materials & Design, is now available online at The Office of Naval Research helped fund the research.


About the New York University Tandon School of Engineering

The NYU Tandon School of Engineering dates to 1854, the founding date for both the New York University School of Civil Engineering and Architecture and the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute (widely known as Brooklyn Poly). A January 2014 merger created a comprehensive school of education and research in engineering and applied sciences, rooted in a tradition of invention and entrepreneurship and dedicated to furthering technology in service to society. In addition to its main location in Brooklyn, NYU Tandon collaborates with other schools within NYU, the country’s largest private research university, and is closely connected to engineering programs at NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. It operates Future Labs focused on start-up businesses in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn and an award-winning online graduate program. For more information, visit
