Garage Physics

The Garage Physics lab in B651 Sterling Hall is an active space for both self-study and mentoring intended to support the Makerbot /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 will offer UW-Madison undergraduates in physics a place to explore existing educational experiments in more depth, play with physics demonstrations and equipment, learn safe procedures and laboratory techniques, and ultimately explore their own creative ideas and conduct research of their own, all in an unstructured safe environment.
