  Abstract: The S-Lab (as it has been recently named) has been operating in its current state for over a decade in the Department of Engineering-Physics-Systems at Providence College creating and managing meaningful research experiences for many students both in the sciences and in other academic departments. This paper outlines the approach used in the lab, the student commitment, the physical and software tools (that include a recent implementation of lab archives), as well as some of the recent projects that have been undertaken. The lab experience for students has been significant. The impacts of S-Labs projects around the world especially in water, sanitation and education will be highlighted.
