The Virtual Poster Service (VPS) is the new sustainable way to show content across campus that would have otherwise been on paper stuck to the walls. To do this we’re going to use TV-like screens, provided by York IT, in a few locations and eventually across campus that will allow students, faculty, and staff to quickly, easily, and freely share content such as announcements and events through a dashboard that will be monitored and approved by the York administration. This will not only greatly reduce the paper waste currently happening on campus, but create a more engaging way for everyone in the community to stay up to date with the latest news.

Pantheon Prototyping is not your typical 3D-printing service.

PANTHEON PROTOTYPING is not your typical 3D-printing service. Enjoy the premium prototyping experience by taking full advantage of our in-house CAD, Manufacturing, and technical consulting services to make your next project a true success. Visit our site today to see how Pantheon Prototyping makes R&D and product iteration a breeze while leaving you with more peace of mind and money in your pocket.


Nick Di Scipio is a mechanical engineering student who first found his passion for additive manufacturing when his uncle gave him a 3D-printer to assemble and produce parts anytime he needed them for his company. What began as a favour for his uncle quickly exploded into a full blown company when Nick realized the potential of on-demand 3D-printing services for those lacking the time needed to set up a 3D-printer and create parts for themselves. Since founding Pantheon, Nick has set out to go beyond on-demand 3D-printing by offering a range of AM technologies, technical consulting, and design services alongside his incredibly talented team of innovative individuals to curate a truly premium prototyping experience for their clients.

KROP is an indoor vertical farm focused on micro-green and salad greens production.

KROP is an indoor vertical farm focused on micro-green and salad greens production. While our current clientele and business strategy are focused on boutique restaurants, greens-focused businesses, and premium subscription boxes, our end goal is straightforward: We are working towards a future where produce is grown locally, sustainably, and affordably; for everyone, everywhere. Our proprietary growing platform is piloted with micro-greens and salad greens to capitalize on their short seed to yield times. Still, it is being developed to handle many common and not-so-common farm crops. The goal is to be the primary producer of a nutritious, sustainable, and long-term diet.

Shapetrace helps construction site teams prevent errors from becoming fiascos, by using mobile devices to compare what was designed with what was built. The longer those construction errors go unaddressed, the more expensive they are to fix, compounding into major delays, cost-overruns, and penalties. Shapetrace makes it easy for anyone to use a tablet with 3D sensing technology to prevent and detect errors immediately before and after installations.
