Getting Started Mod Lab

Welcome to the ModLab!


If you're reading this, then chances are you're a new student, or about to start some project in the ModLab and you're looking where for a place to start. Don't worry, you've come to the right place!

Things you will need to know to get started in ModLab

Getting to PERCH

Call Penn Transit at 215-898-7433 and select #2 at the menu. Ask for a shuttle from wherever you are to Pennovation Works. They will technically pick you up anywhere but try to keep to Penn Transit Stops. Once dropped off take the elevator (slow) or stairs to the third floor.

From 8am-6pm on weekdays, there is a special Pennovation dispatcher, which you can reach by pressing #3 instead of #2. The process is the same, but the response time should be faster.

Getting Card Access to PERCH

If you plan to work at PERCH for an extended period of time and will be working on a Modlab project you will need to get an access card. To get an access card please do the following:

Send an email to charity and gabby and cc your project lead Charity Payne <> Gabriela Angulo <>

The message should look something like this:

Hello Charity,

I will be working on the [project] and from [date start] to [date end] and need a PERCH access card. My name is [name], Penncard ID number is [ID number] and it expires [EXP date]. I will be working through [date expected to leave]. I am working with [project lead name]. Please let me know if you need any other information! Thanks!



Lab Announcements

Please add to your safe senders lists. Lab announcements are sent through this list serv. Make sure you're on this list serv. See/email Professor Yim.

Safety Training

Before you start working in the lab, you must complete the online safety training. First, read the lab safety policy document located here. Then, complete the safety quiz and report back to your Modlab leader.

Mug shot

If you're a new Master's or Ph.D. student, we need your mug. Everyone gets one like the people here: Tarik Tosun is currently responsible for taking everyone's photos. Please see him after a weekly meeting to get your picture taken or arrange a time to meet.
