WHY Lab Fund

The WHY lab (What do engineers do? How the heck do you do that? WhY am I taking this course?) is an ECE Department undergraduate laboratory envisioned as an experiential learning approach to introduce students to discover an area in ECE that best interests them. The WHY lab has many other purposes. For instance, to provide incoming freshmen who have been through a high school robotics/engineering program or activity to continue their interests. Another purpose is to provide an environment that supports undergraduate research and entrepreneurship with mentoring and resources. Also, the lab is used as an outreach instrument to connect with high school students and teachers. Lastly, the WHY lab is also the first of its kind in a newly proposed network of global Peace Laboratories that connects students form different countries to exchange ideas, collaborate and design projects that focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
