ANNOUNCEMENTS

Boyd Lab is closed for finals week and over summer. If you need to use the shop, please contact Craig or Josh to schedule a time. The lab will reopen for regular hours the third week of next semester, September 3rd.

Starting immediately, all persons using the lab over the weekend need to sign-in to the lab using the Smartsheets sign-in form housed on the laptops in the lab. This is in an effort to collect data on shop utilization to determine the future of weekend hours in the lab.
