The Innovation Lab is a hub for creativity and exploration, a place where ideas can be designed and built.
One of the gems of the Gladys Valley Marine Studies Building is the Innovation Lab or iLab. This lab has space and equipment to take your project from the idea phase, to fabricating and testing a prototype and into production.
This vast 2,563-square-foot workshop will be filled with equipment for electromechanical design, CNC and manual machining, welding and fabrication, lathes, 3D design, modeling, printing and laser cutting. There will also be audio and video systems to support innovation in the marine sciences.
In addition, there is an art studio in the MSB. It overlooks the iLab and provides artists and scientists with a collaborative workspace to explore the passion of the marine world.
Thanks to the support of the Roundhouse Foundation, the Innovation Lab Scholarship and Internship Fund can support three Oregon State University undergraduate students interested in developing the programs and operations of the Hatfield Innovation Lab.
