We are a community of designers and builders at UW-Madison within the College of Engineering. Our makerspace, the Grainger Engineering Design Innovation Laboratory, includes 25,000 square feet of shop and flex space with a wide range of rapid prototyping equipment. Largely student run, the makerspace strives to empower students by creating a community immersed in emerging technologies, focused on creating innovative products. In addition, faculty and staff researchers from across the college address pressing needs ranging from novel designs to validation and analysis to ensure peak performance of these technologies.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 to provide the Grainger Engineering Design Innovation Laboratory and the College of Engineering the necessary resources to continue supporting this effort.
As demand for personal protective equipment grows, it is important that we are able to continue our efforts to support people who work in healthcare, public service and many other essential fields.
