Student Resources


To gain access to the Active Learning Labs, students must complete a yearly general lab safety training along with any lab specific training. For instance, to gain access to Pierce G12b (machine shop) a student must take the Active Learning Labs General Lab Safety Training offered at the beginning of the semester PLUS the G12b Machine Shop Training. These trainings are good for one academic year and must be repeated in the fall of each year or whenever access to the labs is requested. All members must also take the Harvard General Lab Safety Training found here:
