Welcome to lab64
Room 004 - David Packard Electrical Engineering @ Stanford
Open Hours: Weekdays 9 AM - 5 PM
lab64 is a Stanford Electrical Engineering-run makerspace. We provide a space, resources, community, and expertise in building electronic systems and physical devices that include electronics and computing.
Our mission is to empower students to learn and fulfill their electrical engineering-related projects and learning goals while building community as part of the Stanford Makersystem at large.
lab64 is open to the entire Stanford community! Any student, faculty, or staff is welcome. It's also 100% Free!!
To be granted access to the lab, you will need to have taken the EE Basic Safety Training, and completed (and passed!) the subsequent ten-question Safety Training Quiz. Use of some lab64 equipment may require additional tool-specific training--see below for more details.
9 AM - 5 PM Monday to Friday (Current - Fall 2022)
Additional Hours are available and will vary. Check the calendar and our Slack!
