Gathered here is a collection of reports generated from past Materials Lab workshops and SOA projects, to provide reference and guidance in future investigations with material or methodological overlap. Collectively, they are intended to form an institutional memory, accelerating the progress by which individual projects proceed. On a basic level, the reports assist with tasks such as selecting appropriate tools, working within local restraints, and sourcing accessible materials. Beyond this, the reports document step-by-step procedures that range from simple to advanced. Documented projects may inspire offshoots that collectively form a branch of in-depth exploration impossible for an individual student to pursue over the course of a singular project.
