The Creat’R Lab encourages and supports creative collaboration across disciplines, allowing the UCR community to explore new possibilities in research and learning.

We believe that giving an opportunity to play with new technologies and tools leads to creative engagement, discovery, and knowledge creation. It’s also fun!
