The StudioLab is a versatile, welcoming, and engaging space for collaboration and creation across the disciplines. The CST developed the StudioLab to bring together students, faculty, and staff, independent of area of concentration, to explore the intersections and shared creativity across STEM, the arts, humanities, and social sciences, contributing to CST’s efforts to broaden intellectual experiences and perspectives, inspire new synergies, and cultivate creativity. The space features motion capture, virtual reality, theater lighting, sound system, dance flooring, robots, 3D printing, conductive fabric and sewing, laser cutting, CNC milling, electronics, computers, building, and more. Programmatic initiatives include courses, labs, studios, student projects, student-led and staff-led activities and workshops, open creative hours, and thematic “hackathons” on social justice topics. These initiatives advance engagement and diversify participation within and across the disciplines, and offer new opportunities to create community.
