Trail, B.C.’s MIDAS Lab opens on September 7, 2016. MIDAS (metallurgical industrial development acceleration and studies) is a prototyping fabrication lab with over $400,000 worth of brand new, production-style equipment. “Someone may walk in the door with an idea and not know where to go next with it,” said MIDAS Lab director Brad Pommen. “We’re here to help them figure that out, whether it’s access they need, or tools. We’re here to spur innovation.” Pommen, a leader in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) initiatives, envisions the reach of MIDAS extending far beyond the West Kootenay.
