What is the Genesis Lab?

Located on the second floor of Payson Library, the Genesis Lab is home to a number of high-tech and low-tech making resources. Our offerings include 3D printing, virtual reality, 360 cameras, a Cricut Maker, a heat press, and gaming PCs. We offer access to modeling and design software such as Unity, Blender, and select Autodesk CAD applications. We also provide support for Adobe Creative Cloud applications, which are hosted on computers in the Academic Center for Excellence.

Our space is a collaborative community designed for individuals across campus to work, learn, create, and make together. We offer opportunities for engagement through class visits, course project integrations, research support, personal projects, and public events.

We currently host the Pepperdine Esports teams for their practices and competitions. You can learn more about the Esports program by visiting their webpage.
