Greatest Maker Colleges: Kent State College



At Kent State College, the Design Innovation Hub is a central useful resource on campus that gives makespace entry and connects to the opposite makerspaces on campus. What is exclusive is its give attention to trend, design and artwork. On this episode, I discuss to J.R. Campbell, who’s the Government Director of the Design Innovation Initiative, and Andrea Oleniczak, who manages the hub and its ecosystem. Campbell believes {that a} makerspace supplies the on-ramps and off-ramps for a scholar to discover their pursuits exterior of main. Oleniczak sees the chance to create an ecosystem that features the bigger neighborhood exterior the college.

For a take a look at the Design Innovation Hub, you possibly can take a digital 3D tour.

I recorded this episode earlier than college students had returned for the autumn semester at Kent State. Since then, Andrea mentioned that there’s been a “sluggish however regular enhance in college students utilizing the power with robust engagement from our Design Innovation Programs.” She additionally talked about that DI Hub is hiring and in search of two assistant managers and a Director of Strategic Communications. They’re planning to double their employees within the subsequent few months.

Transcript: Greatest Maker Colleges – Kent State College

J.R. Campbell: The function of constructing was as a lot about neighborhood improvement and communication throughout divides. Like working with people who find themselves not such as you and determining how by making you possibly can really talk. After which ideate after which clear up. We additionally realized on the identical time that there have been greater than 25 totally different makerspaces which have been created throughout the college that the majority of us had no thought existed.

J.R. Campbell, Government Director

Dale Dougherty: J.R. Campbell is the Government Director of the Design Innovation Initiative at Kent State College in Ohio. He is without doubt one of the leaders behind the Design Innovation Hub, which opened in 2020 in a renovated constructing that after held the artwork division. The DI hub is a central useful resource on campus that encourages college students to have interaction in innovation practices and provides them entry to the instruments and a neighborhood in a makerspace. Campbell says {that a} makerspace supplies on-ramps and off-ramps to college students to discover and experiment, particularly exterior their main. Maybe what makes the Design Innovation Hub totally different from many makerspaces is its robust give attention to artwork, design and trend. Campbell is himself an artist with an MFA in textile arts and costume design.

On this dialog about Kent State, we’re joined by Andrea Oleniczak who manages the Design Innovation Hub and its ecosystem. She had as soon as labored at TechShop Detroit. I requested Andrea extra about her background and what introduced her to Kent State, a job she took with out really visiting the Design Innovation Hub.

Andrea Oleniczak: My background in makerspaces is fairly lengthy. I began working in neighborhood makerspaces after which in graduate college, I used to be on the UW Madison and ended up connecting for the School of Engineering, Grainger Design Innovation Laboratory, and serving to them.

Andrea Oleniczak, Design Innovation Hub Ecosystem Supervisor

That was actually a three-year fantastic expertise of studying what it seemed like to include a makerspace actually completely into teachers and into greater ed. Having that have, I used to be actually trying to return into makerspaces after leaving graduate college with the caveat that I actually needed to have that in a neighborhood sense and never have that below a departmental umbrella.

And so once I began studying about Kent State, the celebs had been actually aligning for me and I had to determine what was taking place right here. Simply by way of Kent State being one thing that was going to be open to the entire neighborhood. And actually it was taking a look at forming a complete ecosystem across the maker environments right here.

Dale: JR, so you actually spearheaded this effort to create a a Design Innovation Hub. And it seems to be like your background’s in trend. And which I believe is a extremely fantastic and weird twist.

J.R.: So my my first diploma is definitely environmental design after which I went on and did an MFA in textile arts and costume design. And for me really the broader sense of design and sustainability have all the time been a extremely key to how I’ve explored each my inventive work and using expertise, totally different instruments as a digital textile artist. For me personally, the evolution feels pure.

I additionally grew up on a farm and all the time labored and constructed issues. And that, that sort of data, or that the tacit expertise in the best way that, that helps not simply to make and clear up issues, however to grasp issues and suppose. That’s all the time been interesting to me and one thing that I’ve tried to embed in how I strategy educating design studio programs.

And so I got here to Kent State, with my textiles background. I’ve been affiliated with trend applications by most of my educational profession. I had been directing a analysis middle at Glasgow College of Artwork referred to as the Middle for Superior Textiles and was targeted on being a Fab Lab, however a industrial surroundings and a analysis surroundings for exploring digital textile, particularly printing applied sciences.

Once I got here to Kent State to Drake Style College, I used to be already conscious of the vary of assets and the ability of the college, but it surely hadn’t actually, not less than by way of the expertise, it hadn’t actually been coalesced right into a imaginative and prescient. And so I began the Textile Lab within the trend college that was Fab Lab/Makerspace to make use of the entire digital enter and output instruments that we might pull collectively within the context of trend, each to discover artwork and design and what you can also make, but additionally the the enterprise fashions which are influenced by being digital. And in order that’s the place it tied into my analysis and work as an artist. I used to be enthusiastic about how we undertake and make the most of new instruments, but additionally the implications for us in these contexts.

Dale: So that you had been a part of a gaggle that got here up with the plan?

J.R.: I used to be simply gonna say, so we bought related due to that. I bought related to folks throughout the college. There have been a core of eight of us originally that had been coming from the, just like the director of the Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State from structure, from college library, from numerous totally different elements of the college that you just wouldn’t usually consider as connecting, however we had been taken with enthusiastic about how we might create conditions for college students to work throughout disciplines collectively to unravel issues. And for me, that began the creation of the style tech hackathon the place wearable expertise is a superb instance that there isn’t any scholar who’s actually learning the complete set of abilities and applied sciences to grasp how you can, on their very own, fully develop wearable tech options.

And it requires collaboration. It requires totally different data units and personalities to make it occur. The idea of how we hyperlink this to makerspaces, I believe as an initiative advanced from actually being about how will we discover cross disciplinary collaboration of the larger issues?

And so in that sense, the function of constructing was as a lot about neighborhood improvement and communication throughout divides. Like working with people who find themselves not such as you and determining how by making you possibly can really talk. After which ideate after which clear up. That’s the place the core of this hyperlink got here collectively.

And all of us we additionally realized on the identical time that there have been greater than 25 totally different makerspaces which have been created throughout the college that the majority of us had no thought existed. And so it was actually about how can we make that seen after which begin to consider connecting it as an ecosystem.

Dale: Every with sort of their very own objective and generally departmental focus.

J.R.: Completely. Yeah. All of these, what we now name the DI nodes, they had been born out of their very own sort of educational areas they usually’re managed there, however our hope is that what we’re doing as we develop this university-wide initiative isn’t just creating some efficiencies, perhaps an ordering of provides and issues like that, however actually making a tradition of constructing that helps all of our college students and the neighborhood suppose extra expansively in regards to the function of constructing and makerspaces. One in all our most conceptual DI nodes by way of it being a Makerspace is the land that’s subsequent to the analysis pond on the fringe of campus as a rising area, it’s a sort of making that I believe is exclusive to how we’re approaching this.

However even within the constructing, we now have innovation educating kitchens, kitchens, and we’re making an attempt to assist our college students not less than take into consideration making, not simply within the context of laser cutters, et cetera.

Exterior View of Design Innovation Hub

Dale: Give me only a fast strolling tour of your constructing, this new constructing and it’s was opening throughout COVID.

J.R.: Truly we do have a digital walkthrough. We did a Matterport scan of the walk-through scan of the whole constructing. So you possibly can stroll by informally. And the explanation that we did that was we couldn’t have a bodily grand opening occasion. And so we created a digital grand opening occasion.

However yeah, so perhaps Andrea, do you wanna discuss in regards to the scope of the constructing and what’s included.

Andrea: It’s three tales and the primary ground is absolutely the center of the Makerspace collaborative surroundings. And that’s what we name the Reactor. So contained in the Reactor, there’s a big open collaboration area that you just’ll see in most makerspaces. After which there are labs and retailers which are off to the facet.

Store room

So we now have a laser reducing and 3d print room, a woodshop, a metallic store, a CNC lab, an electronics and prototyping store, a useful resource library, a paint and glue store, an industrial bay for giant initiatives and a water jet cutter. And that’s all surrounded within the Reactor. Outdoors of that on the primary ground, we now have what we name the Blake Lab, which is absolutely an immersive area that’s rising into all totally different instructions, however ideally it could contain VR/AR, combined actuality.

Proper now we’re putting in brief throw projectors for a full wraparound projection in addition to sound. After which it has the capability to do a full curtain wraparound. So if you happen to needed to simply wrap the black curtain round and simply name it a efficiency and studio area, you possibly can, we even have inexperienced display screen curtain so to do content material creation.

There’s additionally the designer in residence studio that will likely be occupied and shared college studio. That’s open on the primary ground. There’s lots. Okay. So shifting as much as the second ground we now have the admin suites and the DI fellow suite, which is an exquisite area for this system that JR is creating out with the DI fellows. So I’ll let him elaborate on that.

We’ve got LaunchNet for the entrepreneurial enterprise startup, the innovation educating kitchen, a print lab, which could be very particular to textiles. So we’re speaking a few dye sublimation and warmth presses, a gallery. MuseLab, Spark Studio, which is a mini makerspace and the DI classroom.

I believe that’s every part. I simply needed to take slightly tour. As I discussed once we had been first speaking to the third ground is eating which sort of pulls everybody on campus to this one location as the good new spot to eat on.

Dale: So it’s not a brand new constructing.

J.R.: This was the unique college of artwork constructing, nicely initially within the sense that it was the primary one the place it maintain the college of artwork collectively, again in 1972. It was a John Andrews design. And it was a controversial. It’s a really distinctive constructing, has inverted roof traces and was clad externally with Kalwall, the fiberglass sort of translucent supplies.

So in the course of the daytime, the solar infused into the constructing and in the course of the nighttime and the lights had been on, it seemed like a giant glowing dice. And it was designed for collaboration at that time, which was radical within the context of studio arts. And so we took benefit of the footprint and the metal of the constructing, and principally simply reconfigured every part else to to prepare it into what Andrea simply described.

Dale: How did you get the administration behind this concept after which get funding to do that?

J.R.: Yeah. Yeah. It’s query. So I’ve been researching this throughout a lot of totally different establishments due to how we’re rising. Since we had been a grassroots sort of initiative within the college, and there have been a number of like myself who had been in decrease stage administrative –division chairs and assistant deans and issues like that, that had been a part of that early group. We had some fluency and capabilities. However actually this was an concept that we actually needed to transcend the school boundaries. And our aim with DI is to by no means be a college or a level program or a school. As soon as we try this, then we simply turn out to be a self-discipline once more. And this isn’t, it is a self-discipline agnostic idea in that regard.

Dale: It breaks all the principles.

J.R.: And in addition it represents one thing that usually just isn’t secure or doesn’t exist within the college. We don’t usually create areas like this which are unprogrammed, unaccredited, like that. However have an actual academic objective, not simply to be an entry.

So I believe one of many issues that we’re, that we’re actually making an attempt to say is this isn’t only a constructing that’s an open entry Makerspace with expansive considering. This can be a program, an academic program that we imagine each scholar on the college ought to have entry to. And it takes benefit of the makerspaces to really illustrate the way it works.

Dale: I wish to come again to that.

J.R.: So as soon as we had mapped the panorama of the college with a few of our pioneering college students and acknowledge that there have been these twenty-five plus totally different sort of makerspaces or useful resource services, it grew to become far more tangible for our president and provost by way of how they had been enthusiastic about what we had been making an attempt to say.

And, in that sense, by making these issues seen and beginning down the trail of making a DI Hub or suggesting the creation. I believe the president of our college on the time noticed that this was a sort of a game-changer for the way the college positions itself. We had been additionally, this was very strategic, we had been fortunate in that we had a constructing on campus that both needed to be torn down and would have been extremely expensive to do or one thing else needed to occur with it. And. So we took benefit of the truth that there was a time delicate want to deal with this constructing paired with our timing for beginning an initiative. We’re in a position to get funding from each the state and from the college to come back collectively. It was a $45 million redesign initiatives. Wow.

Dale: How lengthy did it take?

J.R.: It was extremely quick, really. From the choice to do the work to the completion of the constructing, it was simply two years. The method, despite the fact that it was mammoth, it did go fairly rapidly. In some ways, it, it was a fascinating timing by way of having the constructing open throughout pandemic, as a result of each different educational Makerspace throughout the U S was principally saying we, we have to shut down.

We didn’t have the funding to have the ability to begin with the employees that we wanted due to COVID as nicely. And so it gave us an opportunity to dig into the constructing slightly bit additional and and prepare for this yr.

Dale: You’re anticipating the primary college students about now, proper? To return in.

Andrea: Yeah, completely. So we had been open slightly bit final yr, as greatest as attainable with masking and social distancing. And what that did enable us to do is fold in teams that had been doing analysis. So just like the Superior Telerobotics Analysis Group, we had been in a position to help them with water jet reducing for a robotic construct, which was fantastic.

So it began small final yr and a trickle. However you possibly can really feel the excitement on campus this fall and it’s fairly totally different than final yr. And so I’m anticipating within the coming weeks, we’re going to be fortunately flooded with college students coming in, determining what this large constructing is and what we provide. So I’m actually trying ahead to it.

Dale: How do you clarify it to new college students? You in all probability get some group that perceive it and such as you say, simply burst in and say give me entry, however there’s others like, is that this for me? I might think about coming in from the eating corridor and strolling downstairs and seeing complicated areas and gear that, it must be slightly intimidating to some folks..

Andrea: It’s, however I’ve been in makerspaces for nearly a decade now, perhaps longer if I really actually did the maths. And what I’m beginning to discover is there’s numerous change in what the scholars have publicity to from YouTube and a number of the content material creators. And so it’s not as weird because it was a decade in the past to say, ah, I don’t know what I’d do with a wooden store or a CNC lab or electronics, and now I believe it’s completely totally different. I’m really actually stunned, doing a number of the interviews with college students, simply how a lot coaching and publicity they’ve earlier than they arrive right here. So numerous them are able to go.

Dale: They’ve had entry to a few of this gear, whether or not they’re locally or in highschool.

Andrea: And simply basic publicity, I believe, which is absolutely fantastic. However I believe we’re in a extremely distinctive place. So despite the fact that the area is open and free for all to be right here, so as to use the gear, we’re asking that college students attend a one-hour orientation and that I really feel is absolutely vital as a result of design innovation is far more than a instrument, proper? It’s a set of assets.

And so we now have this stunning alternative to say, come on in. And if you wish to use a 3d printer let’s sit down for an hour and discuss all of the assets that we’re going to have out there to you past simply this printer. And if an hour from now, you say, oh, all I need is a 3d printer, you’re completely welcome to come back right here. Nevertheless it’s this glorious alternative for us to cease and actually discuss design innovation as an initiative, which matches a lot additional than the set of instruments that we’re providing right here.

And I’m actually excited to see how college students reply to that this fall.

J.R.: What Andrea simply described, I believe, is the proper rationale for me by way of how I consider making as a neighborhood exercise. So one of many methods I described this course of is that we’d prefer to educationally, what I wish to do with DI is present numerous on-ramps and off-ramps. And that’s additionally distinctive for college students in that proper now, if you happen to’re a school scholar, may like my son’s beginning right here proper now.

You are available and also you meet with an advisor they usually provide you with a 4 yr plan. You gotta do that, and this to make it by your diploma. And what we’re making an attempt to do with this initiative is say, really, whilst you’re right here at this wonderful college, have a look round and and discover some issues.

And yeah, we wish to make it attainable for that scholar who simply desires to chip in and be taught slightly bit about 3D printing after which go on their manner. However we additionally wish to hook them in a manner that that will get them enthusiastic about why. What we had been in a position to set up, which can be distinctive is that we had been in a position to launch a collection of design innovation programs which are standalone programs open to any set of scholars. After they’re provided, they’re co-taught by college from totally different disciplines on totally different matters.

So I believe seeing these issues taking place within the area. One of many issues that’s not usually designed to actively into makerspaces, though it’s gaining popularity in educational contexts are the present and inform areas, the gallery model. And though there’s all the time one thing to see in any given makerspace and there are numerous tales behind it. We needed to make that basically intentional as nicely. And so I believe a part of what we’re making an attempt to do within the constructing is make it possible for had been exhibiting what’s occurring as a lot as attainable.

Dale: I all the time thought that was on the core of a makerspace is the truth that you noticed work in progress and even accomplished work. Yep. It speaks to you another way.

J.R.: Yep, completely.

Dale: I believe you had been one of many few areas that I learn about that’s actually coming at it predominantly from an artwork perspective or not less than initially and connecting artwork and design. We’ll see engineering and related design and extra sometimes. The typical artist’s studio was a makerspace. An artist is combining methods and instruments with creativeness and concepts that that make that purposeful.

 I believe it’s only a fantastic and a very trend right here a distinct perspective than numerous colleges may need.

J.R.: Yeah, I believe that’s, one of many issues that drew me to Kent State and the style college was that coming from Glasgow College of Artwork, I used to be surrounded by artistic colleagues and that was wonderful. However as a designer and artist who was working with new applied sciences and enthusiastic about how I can manipulate the chemical properties of the inks, or, the bodily properties of equipment, et cetera, I wanted entry to engineers and others. And I believe in order that the scope of the bigger college, however one the place trend is, the style college is without doubt one of the largest trend colleges within the U S at Kent State.

And so it does have an actual presence right here within the college neighborhood in a manner that’s totally different than many. And in addition I believe what we’ve discovered or what we’ve seen is that we draw in actual fact, in trend, particularly, however throughout our visible arts and design applications, we draw college students who’re very entrepreneurial of their strategy to artistic apply.

Dale: That’s a it’s a terrific factor and perhaps, a tough factor to, to, speaking to totally different people from the Midwest, generally, folks give attention to what, the place am I going to get job? They’re not essentially considering of making that job.

And I believe with numerous these new areas, you want folks which are keen to take the dangers and step out and say I’m not completely clear right here, however I need topursue that.

J.R.: Yeah. In that individual college and the style college, we now have the very best proportion of out of state or worldwide college students as a college on the college. And the place the common in all probability throughout the college is perhaps 70% of the scholars are coming from the state of Ohio. Within the trend college, it’s a lot lower than half. It’s about 46%. And I believe that that’s a part of what I believe we’re making an attempt to do with design innovation is draw college students that we haven’t been capturing earlier than and bringing them in a manner that helps to facilitate that consciousness for our Ohio college students, in addition to as others who had been additional afield.

What we’re making an attempt to do right here is absolutely to consider how will we craft the way forward for American universities in an period by which everyone knows we’re going to have to alter as a result of our demographics are altering and our bodily sure numbers of scholars are altering over the subsequent 10, 15 years. What’s it that defines us or provides college students an actual rationale for coming right here to check? Should you select to come back right here, one of many causes within the trend college that we had been in a position to recruit numerous nice college students is that we’re one of many solely locations that they may come and have a terrific trend schooling and be an athlete.

And most of our incoming college students are “And” college students.. They’re not simply this one factor. I do that. And I believe once we tackle these “And” areas of their pursuits, we really, we’re seeing them as an individual versus a level program.

Should you’re an English scholar, however you wish to do woodworking, what are you able to do on campus? Earlier than DI existed, there wouldn’t have been a approach to discover that curiosity.

Blake Lab

Dale: There’s additionally this hope that somebody that’s in a sociology program or one thing else is available in and sees the expertise may very well be a part of that each that, that sort of life path but additionally intersecting with different disciplines.

J.R.: I believe one of many issues that we’re making an attempt to get throughout is that Makerspace are critically vital additionally within the context of social innovation, and non product oriented options. And I believe that’s one thing that everyone feels proper now. And particularly once we’re enthusiastic about local weather change and the state of the planet and different influencing elements.

However we haven’t actually discovered how you can tackle that educationally or institutionally. And I believe that’s that’s one thing that’s tied to what we’re speaking about as nicely. One of many issues that’s on the core of design innovation is absolutely serving to folks in groups to make use of the ability of their range, to reframe the issue, to see it in a different way.

As a result of we’d like novel options. And whenever you’re doing that, and it’s tied to an artist like artistic course of it’s a must to have entry to the power to make one thing tangible. So that everyone in that numerous crew is like embedding the issue and seeing it from a distinct viewpoint.

One of many methods I believe that going again to the artist factor is that we really, most of us as artists, we glory in approaching our issues as novices in lots of circumstances like, like leaping into one thing that we don’t know whether or not we are able to really make it occur. And that’s not a traditional conduct for the common physics scholar.

Nevertheless it may very well be, and it in all probability needs to be in the event that they’re enthusiastic about how they’re going to radically affect their subject.

Dale: One of many key concepts is that just about a problem your self to be taught one thing new, not figuring out whether or not you’re good at it or whether or not the end result is what you may count on.

 There’s alternative to be taught like a language that different folks use in a self-discipline and be capable of discuss issues, despite the fact that you may even be capable of execute the best way they do, you possibly can discuss to them about it and recognize what they do.

J.R.: Completely.

Dale: You’ve talked about this orientation that college students go to. What does it appear to be? How do they purchase particular talent units in your area? Are there workshops and issues occurring lots along with the orientation?

Andrea: So the orientation is absolutely simply an introduction. It’s a tour of the power. It’s fairly laid again. We make everybody do a Lego construct to introduce themselves, to shake them up proper once they stroll within the area. However as college students are at present revamping it with a slide present, which is totally fantastic, it has even a Lego countdown in numbers, which is fairly cool.

So that’s actually to introduce the initiative as a complete, to speak in regards to the totally different nodes on campus, to take heed to the ecosystem, the totally different applications that they could be a a part of proper now every part is fairly relaxed by way of entry to the area. So we now have slightly bit extra of a take the orientation after which join what machine you’d like. We sort of work with you one-on-one. Over time, I believe we’ll add slightly bit extra formality to that with extra formalized, organized programs and the workshops. I do know college students throughout COVID that had been working right here, spent numerous their downtime, creating these workshops in order that we might begin them.

However the lack of ritual actually had lots to do with the COVID yr. So how will we not take into consideration what I’m used to at makerspaces, which is you shove 20 folks in a course on CNC after which give them a checkmark and say, you’re able to go. However how do you as a substitute take a look at that with slightly bit extra fluidity to say, okay, we now have two college students this week in CNC, how will we not put a gate in entrance of them and simply enable them to start out having these conversations?

And so I believe we’ll keep fairly fluid this fall. After which as we begin including extra college students who can assist construct these programs, we’ll add slightly bit extra formality when it turns into vital, or when we now have 100 college students that wish to be taught CNC. So it’s fairly totally different than numerous the services I’ve been at and partially that’s as a consequence of final yr and the struggles that we had by way of spacing and distancing.

However I additionally suppose it’s a extremely nice experiment to have a look at how we would be capable of change issues from numerous these formal lessons to have extra of an open door, to let college students are available.

J.R.: I ought to say to that, simply to provide the image, Andrea selected to work with us with out ever having bodily come to campus. That was at first the primary a part of her place really began remotely, like many individuals during the last yr and a half. However when she arrived she facilitated and reviewed 90 scholar functions to work on what we name the DI Crews, scholar staff. And ended up hiring 26.

And she or he educated every of these college students in groups to start the method, however they really then had been deployed by Andrea to develop tutorials for every of the machines in artistic ways in which could be accessible from their viewpoint. So I believe there’s a wealth of assets which have been created up to now. And we’re, we’re simply determining how you can combine to deploy that in context with what Andrea simply mentioned.

Dale: College students are actually one of many keys listed below are getting the sense of possession of the area, the sense of delight within the area, a way of welcoming within the area. It’s good to listen to you develop the crew that’s educated to try this.

J.R.: Yeah, I believe that was one thing that we each aligned very well on. And Andrea has deployed fully is that the we had been in the identical manner they’ve described range in groups in a DI context, we actually needed to consider how we might pull college students from any main on campus and get them in control the place the neighborhood side of their involvement, and at the same time as college students who had been chargeable for serving to to facilitate entry to the area, they nonetheless wanted to symbolize the tradition that we had been making an attempt to create round DI.

Dale: I’m actually anxious to see what sort of scholar initiatives develop on this first yr. I’d like to see a number of the initiatives that come out of your program this yr and the range of scholar pursuits and drawback fixing.

J.R.: One in all our DI fellows and DI crew members who simply graduated this final yr was again within the constructing at present. He’s headed to a grad diploma program in Michigan. And he had a terrific thought, which was primarily based off of what they’re doing at their college library. They don’t cost the scholars to make use of the instruments, however they require them to publish a weblog about what they’re doing.

 That positively bought me enthusiastic about how we would begin a useful resource that will be a collaborative weblog. In that context, it’s not only a social media publish that such as you had been describing. It’s course of. It’s considering. It’s some photographs and a few examples and perhaps it’s completed,

Dale: I recognize your time at present. I bought to be taught deal about your Design Innovation Hub. I’d love to remain in contact and listen to extra about it because it develops.

J.R.: Yeah glad to attach and and keep related in that regard.

Great. Thanks a lot.
