Innovation Sandbox

Innovation Sandbox, OCOB, CIE, Orfalea College of Business

We are looking forward to reopening Innovation Sandbox in a limited capacity in Fall Quarter 2021!

Innovation Sandbox is a place for students to “play” with the latest prototyping/ideation tools, explore new subjects, develop technologies and share knowledge.

Equipped with a variety of resources for students to use, including state-of-the-art equipment, educational programs, and student mentors from all disciplines, the Innovation Sandbox introduces Cal Poly students from all majors to cutting-edge technology, enabling them to formulate and develop their ideas.

By applying what you learn in the classroom, working with people from different majors and backgrounds towards a common goal, the Innovation Sandbox is a student-run program that embodies the Learn by Doing philosophy that defines Cal Poly.
