At the lab you will find resistors, capacitors, LEDs, buttons, switches, audio connectors, inductors, MOSFETs, Arduinos , wires, couplers and more. Parts can be found in the parts drawers at the front of Detkin Lab and in the lab office.

If you need parts from inside the office, please ask a staff member for assistance. You will need to fill out our form since this is considered a parts loan.

If you need parts for a project that we do not have in stock, the same form includes a link for a spreadsheet you should copy and fill out so we can order the parts for you.
