The Garage Physics lab in B613 Sterling Hall is an active space for self-study, mentoring, and interdisciplinary innovation intended to support the maker/synthetic biology/garage-physicist/entrepreneur generation of students joining our campus, in particular those joining the physics department and our undergraduate University Physical Society. It offers UW-Madison undergraduates and graduate students a place to explore existing educational experiments and demonstrations in more depth, to learn safe procedures, hands-on skills, and laboratory techniques, to explore their own creative ideas through project-oriented just-in-time learning, and to conduct research of their own, all in an unstructured safe environment. Want to be a 'maker' and join the 'maker/innovator/entrepreneur' movement? You have come to the right place. Invention is the mother of necessity. The Garage Physics lab in B613 Sterling Hall is an active an unstructured safe environment for student-driven interdisciplinary innovation. Garage offers all UW-Madison undergraduates and graduate students a space to try out 3d-printer operation and explore electronic devices and to develop creative ideas through project-oriented just-in-time learning. Garage also supports research and development of product ideas by would-be entrepreneurs. Want to make something or make something happen? You have come to the right place. Invention is the mother of necessity.
