Girl Scouts Visit the Innovation Lab

This Saturday, Girl Scouts came to visit the Lab and learn about the different tools and technologies that are available.  Staff members gave them an orientation and educated them on things such as 3D printing and arduinos.  The girls also enjoyed the opportunity to utilize the green screen and white board walls.  The Innovation Lab is excited to get a younger generation involved in the community and looks forward to hosting future events like this one!

LED Flower Building for a Cause

Help Innovation Lab & IEEE build LED roses for the Artem Ayzen Scholarship fundraiser!

No experience is necessary.

The LED roses will be sold as a fundraiser in memory of Artem Ayzen, a former graduate student in the EE/CE program that passed away due to a tragic accident.
Artem was the brainchild of the roses, which he used to promote engineering to women. All the proceeds will go to a scholarship fund in his name.

Ardruino Workshop


This past Wednesday the Innovation Lab and Saket Ati, the president of IEEE, hosted a hands on Ardrunio workshop. The workshop, for beginners, focuses on the different parts of tIMG_2086 (2)he Ardrunio and what they are used for. Ati discussed how to set up simple cirucits with blinking lights, buttons and buzzers. After the basics were covered, participants practiced uploading small C programs using the Ardruino’s IDE software. The goal of the workshop was not just to teach the basics of Ardrunio but, to show the variety of projects that the Ardruino can be used for in real world applications. IMG_20150401_135935654 IMG_20150401_135822319
