Dr. Andy Hauger leads a beginning Arduino pop-upA novel approach to implement experiential learning, pop-ups come in a variety of formats and offer students the opportunity to engage in meaningful, low-risk activities offered without grades or academic credit.  Pop-ups will be offered to all students and faculty on AU campus.  Pop-ups will focus on several main areas:  topics of interest in STEM, programming and/or data analysis skills, soft skills and career awareness.                

Spring 2022 schedule for popup workshops (TO BE UPDATED)
Augusta University Building Codes and Map are available if you are uncertain of the location.
