Features of MWM

MWM's major features:

  • Collaborative spaces for learning and working with 3D printing, electronics, wood, plastic, and metal work for users of all ages.
  • Small scale manufacturing through support for classes and projects at local tertiary institutions, as well as product design and development for startups and local businesses.
  • Education and curriculum focused on user-centered low-cost design and engineering. MWM will host the ImpactLabs Workshops and continue to teach secondary and university students skills such as low-cost engineering, and demonstrate how to apply such skills to their local communities.

 

At MWM, we will have:

   OPEN HOURS: Times when the facility is open to its members/public for fabrication, experimentation, or fixing one’s bicycle.
   MEETUPS: Informal seminars on topics of general interest.
   CHALLENGES: Organized competition or hackerthon on various topics.
   EDUCATION: Using makerspaces as the vehicle for advanced educational strategies, i.e. learn by doing.

All activities at MWM will be community driven.
