What: An exciting, virtual hands-on learning laboratory

When: Learn By Doing Labs take place Thursday and Friday mornings (9:20-11:30) during Cal Poly's Winter & Spring Quarters (January-March and April-June) for 5th-8th graders.

How: Registration is required to participate.  All applicants will be entered into a lottery, and spots will be filled accordingly.
