Project Workspace

Project Workspace:
Your team is allocated a color-coded workspace in the Pappalardo Lab.

The workspace has a cabinet stocked with a set of tools, two work tables, and a white board. There is a lockable storage cabinet under one of the tables. You may also ask for an extra team locker (see the week 2 lab notes).

The project workspaces are available during standard shop hours (Mon. - Fri. 7:30 AM - 4:45 PM) and during most the Tuesday and Wednesday evening lab sessions (6-9:00 PM). The evening lab periods are 7-10:00 PM.

The lab will not be open on weekends. Floor machines are normally available during standard shop hours only.

A conference room in the Pappalardo Lab reserved for your weekly lab. The tool officers are responsible for ensuring that the conference rooms and work areas are maintained properly. The conference rooms, team workspace, and machines must be kept clean and treated with respect. Food should not be brought into the conference rooms.

 

Special Equipment:
In addition to the traditional floor machines that are available in the Pappalardo lab, there are a number of other pieces of equipment provided for the teams. These include:

  • 2 Large format HP plotters in the north and south conference rooms of the lab. The newest plotter is at the south end.
