The Edgerton Center Student Project Lab (Room 4-409) is home to a community of students who meet to tinker, experiment, design, build, learn, and have fun while doing it.
The space is designed to provide inspiration and promote inquiry, while encouraging community and collaboration. Tools and materials are available to support projects that involve combinations of mechanical, electronic, artistic, and musical elements.
