Our mission is to become the most helpful, accessible and inclusive makerspace at MIT. As an online community with members spread across the world, we are accessible 24/7 to answer questions, offer project guidance, and connect you with the right people.  A collaboration between ProtoWorkshop and Project Manus, we are open to the greater MIT community from all departments and class years, including alumni and faculty.
