The Stanford Product Realization Lab is a multi-site teaching facility where Stanford students discover the power to create the future. Established as the Student Shops when the university opened its doors, the PRL has been at the heart of Stanford’s pragmatic, results-driven curriculum for more than 125 years. Each year, under the mentorship of PRL faculty and course assistants, more than 1000 Stanford undergraduate,graduate, and professional school students make things of lasting value--innovative medical, food production, transportation, communications, and consumer products--that transform lives at home and abroad.
