MakerWorks will be hosting 2.007 students in our shop from 8-10pm tonight 4/26. The shop will remain open; however, work may be affected. Be advised that 2.007 students will take priority during this time and mentors may suggest that you refrain from operations that require supervision (i.e. heavy machining, etc.). Please respect our mentors and any policies put in place during this time as they are meant to ensure your safety. Thank you for your patience.
MakerWorks will be closed on Monday and Tuesday (4/18 and 4/19) next week following the institute holiday. Please note that this also means that there will be NO Maker Monday next week. MakerWorks will be open with normal hours beginning 4/20. Happy Marathon Monday!
A big thank you to Tom and Tony from Analog Devices (ADI)! Yesterday, they brought us electrical measurement equipment including: oscilloscopes, signal generator (up to 1GHz), and power supplies. This is the start to the new and improved MakerWorks electronics section. We appreciate the donation ADI!
Mentor meeting will replace regular shop hours.
