The George H. Stephenson Foundation Educational Laboratory, located in 225 Skirkanich Hall, is the primary teaching lab for the Department of Bioengineering. The lab is a "Bio-MakerSpace" with t
ools and supplies available for molecular biology work, human and animal physiology studies, chemistry, and microfluidics; Instron test systems for mechanical testing; electrical/electronic test and prototyping equipment; and mechanical prototyping equipment, including 3-D Printers, and a laser cutter. The lab is open to all PennCard holders.

Lab courses are heavily project based, and students learn modeling, analysis, and design techniques involving physiological studies, instrumentation and circuit design, medical device development, biomechanics, biomaterials, microfluidics, and cell engineering.
