Collaborative Experiential Learning Laboratory

The CELL supports creative, interdisciplinary work that is both playful and profound. It is equipped with a 3D printer and board games, Virtual Reality and glue sticks. The construction of the CELL reflects its inclusive, experimental identity: it was designed by students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who were given a broad mandate and supported with appropriate tools. The CELL is located within Lyman Briggs College, which is known for experimental, high powered teaching and for a curriculum that addresses science and culture in the same breath.
