In 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne developed the first Apple computer in the garage of Steve Jobs' parents' house.
In honor of famous companies started in garages, the Department of Computer Science has created a Makerspace in Math Sciences 142 called Garage142, where computer science students can explore new toys, hardware & equipment and play - discover - try out new, innovative and crazy ideas!
Garage 142 is available to all undergraduate students and graduate students in Computer Science, and all graduate students in Computational Media Design. It’s located in Math Sciences 142 (MS 142), across from the CSUS main office (see map below)
We will be hosting a range of events in November – please visit our calendar (https://goo.gl/jIFi5o) for more detail.
To access Garage 142, you must first pass a Safety Training – which will be held on Fridays at 2 p.m. (starting 4 Nov) and at 10 a.m. (starting 18 Nov).
