UW Bothell Collaboratory
Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday from 10:00am - 5:00pm
Location: Discovery Hall room 152
The UW Bothell Collaboratory is a creative and open environment that allows you to work on academic and personal projects as a team or individually. The space provides equipment, materials, and training needed for co-creating physical and/or digital prototypes, art, and other work products. Our current focus is to continue developing and evolving this into a space that is inviting and welcoming to students of all majors, pre-majors, graduates, and interest levels.
Collaboratory Spring Updates
We will be hosting several workshops on how to use some of the most commonly used machines and tools in the space, such as the 3D printers, laser cutters, and sewing machines. Check out the following links to register for one:

New to the Collaboratory is the addition of Digital Badges! These badges are a form of digital credentialing that you can earn and show off as proof of your knowledge and experience in a specific topic, such as 3D printing. Upon request, a staff member can issue you a badge if you have completed each of the requirements for the badge. See our Digital Badges page for a list of all the current badges we have to offer.
Check out the UW Bothell Badgr page to see all the badges the Collaboratory, and other campus units have on offer. This site is where all your earned badges will be kept, so we recommend creating an account using a personal email so you will have access to your badges after graduating.
