“Introduction to Making” (2.351J / 15.351J) is a highly immersive, hands-on introductory course for undergraduate and graduate students in any course of study. If you are curious about how to make physical things, make them work and integrate them with electronics/software, you’ve come to the right place.
You will gain knowledge of common design and fabrication techniques and skill in using them:
- Computer Aided Design (CAD)
- rapid prototyping techniques
- Arduino programming
- and more.
You will then use this knowledge and skill in work on an individual design and build project that leads up to “Demo Day”, where you will show off your prototype along with the rest of the class.
The course will be offered remotely in Fall ’20 and therefore will also be modified slightly to provide the best experience possible. The class uses lectures when necessary or when it’s the best way to teach a subject, but we also integrate fun activities that require using knowledge and skill, i.e. Mens et Manus.
