DunkWorks Equipment

DunkWorks is a collaborative facility that integrates new technologies to support creation of prototype devices and testing of new designs prior to deployment in a marine environment. At DunkWorks, we support both conceptual development and physical construction by giving users of the facility an opportunity to engage in an iterative cycle of trying and failing-failing being a necessary component of risk-taking, innovation, and learning. In the process, users practice and acquire new, tangible skills to help advance their careers and the fields in which they work.
