The mission of MIT MakerWorks is to foster a student community in a hands-on learning environment where modeling, prototyping, and validation resources coexist. MIT MakerWorks provides space and equipment for a community of innovators that focus on deterministic designing and problem solving. We are a student run space which focuses on increased access to a wider range of resources than available in many spaces on campus. Peer mentoring greatly impacts the learning in the space, as many shops have a large number of users, but a small number of experts available for teaching.
MITERS is a student run shop for people to work on various personal projects. We are primarily a community that wants to encourage learning and pursuing extra-curricular interests.
