In addition to being an engaging place for students and faculty to explore science and the human-nature connection, the Nature Lab offers a wide range of specialized equipment and tools that allow for research and documentation of natural materials, specimens, systems and processes.
While our microscopy, computing, specialized lighting and other equipment are available for use in the lab only, students are welcome to check out a number of devices for field research, including still and video cameras, audio equipment and GPS trackers.
