MIT Project Manus and Making at MIT is featured prominently in the Fall 2019 Issue of MIT Spectrum

Making has always been at the heart of an MIT education. The Institute’s motto, “mens et manus” (mind and hand), reflects this educational ideal, which harnesses creativity, intellect, and craftsmanship for practical application. Today, MIT is embracing the mission of making with more fervor than ever.
