Lab mentors are what makes the IPDL special. They provide support and are key contributors to the lab's ability to be an access point to learn, engage, create, and invent with interactive technologies.
They bring knowledge, energy, and drive to the day to day running of the lab. Without them the lab would not be the same.
What is a Lab Mentor?
Lab mentors are students who are critical to the day to day operations of the IPDL. Mentors keep the doors of the lab open for the Georgia Tech community to utilize the lab throughout the week. They are dedicated lab members who help to assist and inspire their peers, and offer guidance and support for students working in the lab. Lab mentors are responsible for assisting with lab hardware and equipment, maintaining lab cleanliness and operation, and contributing to the development of lab materials. Additionally and simultaneously, lab mentors gain the ability to work on their own lab-related projects and through their service gain increased abilities to network with industry, faculty, and the community.
