Georgia Tech version of Garage Physics and Invention Studio http://inventionstudio.gatech.edu/about/. "Creativity, invention, and innovation are values championed as central pillars of engineering education. However, university environments fostering the kinds of open-ended design- build projects that embody these values are uncommon and, to the extent that they do exist, are underutilized. The Invention Studio, a free-to-use, 3,000 square-foot maker space and culture at the Georgia Institute of Technology, is such an environment. There, 500 student users per month hang out, create things, meet, and mentor each other for at least 25 courses as well as independent projects. The Invention Studio is managed and maintained by an undergraduate student group with support from the university. Herein, we describe the motivation, organization, facilities, outreach, safety, funding, and challenges as well as its primary uses and impacts on student users. These facilities, infrastructure, and cultural transformation are demonstrating the value and sustainability of hands-on, design- build education to stimulate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship in engineering undergraduates."

Pittsburg Human Engineering Research Lab http://www.herl.pitt.edu/research. "The Human Engineering Research Labs (HERL) are often referred to as an innovators’ playground by developing trainees and seasoned professionals alike. HERL boasts a 40,000 square-foot space including 15,000 sq ft of open lab space and a 10,000 sq ft machine shop with state-of-the-art machining, welding, rapid prototyping and electronics design and fab- rication facilities and equipment. What makes this space special is the inclusive environment that it creates—all spaces are communal, meaning no space is principal investigator specific, and fully accessible for persons with disabilities. There are classroom spaces amidst the lab and machining equipment to optimize experiential learning opportunities. The lab is equal parts innovation- and training-driven, allowing everyone from high school interns to undergraduate researchers to graduate fellows to high school science teachers to military veterans to learn the fundamentals of user-centered rehabilitation engineering design."

Yale Center for Engineering Innovation and Design, http://ceid.yale.edu/about-us/what-is-the-ceid/

"In 2009, the faculty of the Yale School of Engineering & Applied Science created a strategic plan for advancing the school, with one of the three goals of the plan being to advance the culture of engineering on the Yale campus. Central to this goal was the cre- ation of the Yale Center for Engineering Innovation and Design, a new 8,500 square foot space for instruction, fabrication and assembly to support curricular and extracurricular design activities. This paper details the concept for the center, its design and outfitting, and the success of the first year of operation in 2012-13. The paper discusses the princi- ples that guided the design of the center, the collaboration of colleagues at and beyond Yale to plan it, the creation of a community of design enthusiasts who actively use it, and the ways in which it advances the culture of engineering at Yale."(Designing the Yale Center for Engineering Innovation and Design Vincent Wilczynski, Yale University, NCIIA 2014 San Jose) http://nciia.org/open/presentation/designing-the-yale-center-for-engineering-innovation-and-design/
