With flexibility comes possibility
When the pandemic put the world into lockdown, academic classes across campus had to shift quickly to remote learning. This posed particular challenges for hands-on lab courses, including three core classes in Berkeley’s mechanical engineering department.
Faculty and students solved the problem by creating a microcontroller and electronics kit that provided everything students would need to build and test circuits, as well as a companion website with collaboration tools. Within three weeks, kits had been delivered to 270 students worldwide.
Such flexibility to adapt to adversity was made possible through discretionary resources like the Berkeley Engineering Fund. Contributions to this annual fund can be put to use immediately in support of the college’s greatest needs. With your support, anything is possible.
