About

At MIT, the motto "Mens et Manus,"  or "Mind and Hand" is central to the work of students, as we combine rigorous scientific and engineering knowledge with hands-on experience. Formed in 2013, our team was inspired to broaden this type of learning back to our home continent. Through ImpactLabs, we created a program which identifies areas of need in target communities and works with students to come up with engineering solutions. Students learn how to construct multiple devices, hear from entrepreneural speakers from around the country, as well as receive mentorship from fellow participants, instructors, and partners. Our programs are free-of-charge due to the kind support of our partners.
