For nearly 10 years the Experiential Learning Funds have supported extracurricular design/implement engineering projects in which students learn by doing, often in the spirit of competition. These funds, totaling up to $100,000 per year, result from the commitment of a donor to realizing the potential of hands-on student learning at the University of Virginia. They have in recent years supported the Mini Baja team, the Combat Robotics team, the iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) team, UVA Aero, a clinical device conceived by students, and many more exciting projects.
