Current Projects

Illini Gadget Garage

Launched with funding from the  UI Student Sustainability Committee, this is  a collaborative repair center for student and staff owned electronic devices, in order to

  • extend the useful life of products
  • provide experiential learning for student through associated classes, volunteering, and participation in the iFixit Technical Writing Project; and
  • empower people to see do-it-yourself repair as a viable option for addressing minor damage and performance issues

The project is currently funded by donations from individuals and corporations to the UI Foundation’s Sustainable Electronics Initiative Support Fund and through contract work coordinated by the ISTC Technical Assistance Program.
