Our Mission:

SLAC creates a collaborative space and environment to foster Olin's project-based culture.

WHAT WE DO?

SLAC hosts weekly gatherings in Olin's library, building community around tutorials, workshops, and group project meetings. In this collaborative environment, students also have the opportunity to connect with and learn from peers. In addition, we put on an annual festival of creativity, SLACFest, which is an all-day event that brings students together in the spirit of creation. Students, faculty, and alumni come together to engage in activities ranging from knitting and communal cooking to robotics and 3D printing. Nominate someone / yourself to lead a tutorial, skillshare, workshop or more HERE

Success Stories

MarCom Logo Rebranding


Instead of going to a professional agency, Olin administration came to SLAC offering students a creative opportunity. SLACers had a chance to redesign the outdated Olin Phoenix seal. At SLAC, students worked together at a 'sketch-a-thon' to ideate a new phoenix designs and be a part of Olin history.

Atmega Programming Tutorial


Byron, a current sophomore, wanted to teach students about programming the Atmega microprocessor with raw C code. The tutorial was initially planned for a smaller session, but we brought it to SLAC to broaden the audience. In one of SLAC's most successful tutorials, students explored an area of embedded programming in a supportive and engaging space.

Web Scraping with Python


As the author of a published book on Python Web Scraping, Olin alumna Ryan Mitchell led an exciting tutorial on how to access and process data from the web using Python! Students coded along to live programming demos. She also had a book signing and distribution after her tutorial, a huge hit!
