Getting Started

Main content start

Welcome to the Product Realization Lab!

The PRL is open to all currently registered Stanford students. Here’s what you need to do to get started each academic year:

1. Attend a safety orientation session.

  • Log in to WebShop.
  • Sign up for a safety orientation. Safety orientation sessions start at scheduled times and run for 75 minutes. Safety sessions meet in the Machining Lab in Building 610 (on the corner of Santa Teresa and Duena Street). Please wear closed-toe shoes to your scheduled session.

2. Show up!

Come into the PRL to work. The PRL operates on a schedule of 3 daily 4-hour sessions (8:30am-12:30pm, 1:30-5:30pm, 7-11pm). Check the schedule on WebShop to find open sessions in the lab area you’d like to work in.

3. Talk to a Course Assistant in the PRL.

Come in and talk to a CA during an open session. They are a fantastic resource for you!
