              Food Truck for the Physics Mind                 
If you are at the loading dock at Tri-Main Center, you might see an unusual truck parked there. The truck, the project of Tri-Main Center's tenant, Teachspin, was launched from our loading dock and returns for refreshing and reloading throughout the year. This unique truck, the Food Truck for the Physics Mind, travels to college campuses to nourish students who are studying physics. It provides hands-on experience for faculty, staff & students in more than 15 Advanced Physics Instruments. Designed specifically for inquiry-based learning, the physics truck’s instruments promote conceptual understanding and professional results while being accessible for students of all physics levels. Food Truck for the Physics Mind was the brainchild of educational specialists at TeachSpin Inc.

Students throughout the country have benefited from this initiative. The truck has traveled over 30,000 miles and to 42 campuses. Students and faculty have reported the valuable opportunities that Teachspin and the Food Truck for the Physics Mind has provided for them.

Imagine a food truck, only full of physics experiments.,-only-full-of-physics-experiment.php

When Food Truck for the Physics Mind visited the Gordon College Campus, "students were able to explore instruments that they wouldn’t normally have access to. It’s very academically focused and a really novel and effective pedagogy for upper division physics.”                                                                                                         

Food truck fuels the imagination:

“I gained more insight on how to develop your own method for experimentation,” said Kemal Turksomnez, Class of ’19.
TEACHSPIN is dedicated to the design, development, manufacture, and marketing of apparatus appropriate for laboratory instruction in physics and engineering. The goal is to become the world's premier designer, manufacturer and marketer of high quality, rugged, reliable, hands-on instruments that allow any school, no matter what the size or individual expertise of its faculty, to teach a wide variety of classic and modern experiments.

Jonathan Reichert, founder: "I began TEACHSPIN in 1992 only intending to build an instrument that would make it possible for every college or university, no matter what the expertise of its faculty, to teach Pulsed NMR as a standard advanced laboratory experiment. In the process of building that first instrument, I discovered a mission. TeachSpin is dedicated to creating rugged, reliable, and affordable hands-on instruments that any physicist, no matter what his or her area of expertise, can incorporate into an advanced laboratory program. In addition to designing instruments from my own repertoire, we have developed exciting collaborations that have enabled TeachSpin to offer a broader range of experiments. As of this writing, we have partnered with faculty from University of North Carolina, Charlotte, California Institute of Technology, and Calvin College.

Hundreds of TeachSpin’s experiments are now installed in teaching laboratories all over the world, including the University of Cambridge in the UK – where Reichart says the pulsed NMR experiment has proved particularly popular. The company is run as a foundation, with all the profits used to support the education of undergraduates students through advanced physics laboratories.

"At my small undergraduate institution—10 physics majors per year on average—the primary obstacle I faced in implementing those experiments was locating funds to purchase the equipment. Fortunately, the Jonathan F. Reichert Foundation started the ALPhA immersions equipment grant program, which has been a godsend to me and my students."
                        Phase II of 45 Jewett Ave. now houses its first tenant,
                                Buffalo Collegiate Charter School, BCCS

Phase II is progressing with the completion of 17,000 sq ft, which is the new home of Buffalo Collegiate Charter School. The college preparatory school, now serving 4 and 5th grades, will grow to serve students in 4 - 12 grades and will eventually expand to 36,000 sq. ft.

There are 9,200 sq ft still available for offices or other uses.  he proximity to Tri-Main Center and its amenities provides many opportunities for networking and collaboration in this growing community.

                        BAS hosts a reception for the
               Buffalo Niagara Arts Association (BNAA)  

                             Annual Fall Member Exhibition

The Buffalo Niagara Art Association (BNAA) is a stylistically diverse network of western New York artists bonded together to promote community understanding and interest in the visual arts. In 1957, the Society sponsored its first outdoor art festival on the lawn of the Amherst Central high school. Over time it developed a tradition of annual spring and fall exhibitions held in various galleries throughout the area. The exhibited works and awards were selected by a non-member juror who possessed reputable credentials in the art field. This tradition continues to this day.


                  NOVEMBER 17 - DECEMBER 22, 2018            
The Annual Resident Artists Show and Sale includes a large variety of affordable art works in a range of media including painting, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, and more. The artwork fills both galleries as well as the community space and gift shop.Resident Artists will also have hundreds of works on display in their studios. This annual event is an opportunity to celebrate the the fine work of Buffalo Art Studio’s 32 Resident Artists with the community at-large. Please note that Buffalo Arts Studios and its galleries will be CLOSED Thursday, November 22 – Monday, November 26, 2018 as well as Saturday, December 22, 2018 – Wednesday, January 2, 2019.

it's well deserved.

The award ceremony was held September 20 at

Tri-Main Center.
 A new navigation app has been has been developed for Tri-Main Center, created by Twisted Rope, a tenant in the building. A new navigation touchscreen, installed in the lobby, will provide directional information. With these new additions, we plan to make it easier for visitors to the building to navigate through the hallways to tenant offices. In the App, users will be able to find specific information about tenants.
Zone markers will be placed throughout the building, on each floor, that are used for navigation. Once you have downloaded the app, pick the desired location in the building from the menu. Press the red arrow button. Select the zone nearest you. A floor plan will appear, showing you how to get to your destination. Select stairs or elevator.  
We look forward to sharing this with our visitors, tenants and their clients.
