Tagg's Innovation Hyperlab the focus of entrepreneurship programs
Randall Tagg, associate professor of physics, writes about the three primary entrepreneurship programs going on through the physics department: the development of medical device prototypes by bio and medical physics undergraduate majors; the Innovation Hyperlab (a collaboration with Auruora Public Schools (which involves 9th–12th graders in innovation projects oriented toward biomedical problems); and the modular curriculum of lab-based short courses that the Innovation Hyperlab inspired. This article cites these programs as being “stand-out” among the trend of entrepreneurship in physics education, and counts them a major recruitment draw for the department.
