UW Bothell: The Innovation Campus

Classroom settingThe University of Washington Bothell has been called the "innovation campus" and for good reason.  Innovation is at the core of all we do, from teaching to technology. Our undergraduates get involved in research projects with faculty members early in their academic careers. 

Come visit our new Makerspace, which is housed in the beautiful Collaboratory in Discovery Hall.  What would you like to make?
