Description: The CollabLab is a student organization that promotes maker culture and collaboration at WPI by encouraging an facilitating extracurricular student projects.
We operate a member-run Makerspace (AKA Hackerspace) located in Higgins Lab 005 to serve as the central workshop for student projects on campus. This lab provides the tools, materials, workspace, storage, training, and other resources necessary for a wide variety of technology-related student projects.
In addition to this Lab, the CollabLab organization fosters collaboration between inventive students at WPI. By bringing together a variety of people with unique skill sets and expertise to work on projects under one roof and facilitating virtual networking through our website and social media we aim to encourage innovation, entrepreneurship, knowledge-sharing, and cooperation among the WPI maker community.
