The Lab-o-rama is a unique poster jam event designed to showcase and share the stories of research using the MIT Campus as a Test Bed. The events featured the work of diverse research teams including operational, academic and external partners and include live demonstrations, models, simulations and other hands-on activities.
Learn more about the phenomena of lablet-ing; a term for short-term experiments, pilots and micro-research projects that utilize the MIT campus as a test bed.
Lablet-ing represents an important opportunity to explore innovation strategies within the context of real-world environments, to construct new knowledge and to test scalability strategies.
Urban Living Lab Learning is a place-based research platform that utilizes the college campus as a test-bed for innovation and the co-production of knowledge. The living lab concept may be thought of as a variant of the experiential learning model that involves concrete experience followed by observation, reflection and the formation of new concepts and testing in new situations.
Profiles of students, staff and faculty and staff who are utilizing the MIT Campus as a Test bed for innovation. Learn about important work and big ideas from those who are on the front line lines of campus-based inquiry.
