You can use your MakerLodge credentials at several shops on campus. Remember, you should always contact the shop manager be-fore trying to work in a new shop. Click on a shop below to learn more!
The EC Student Project Lab is a place to tinker, experiment, design, build, learn and have fun while doing it. We provide access to a community of enthusiastic students, staff, and alumni with a range of technical skills in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, music, and art, and coding.

At the International Design Center (IDC) we design devices, products, systems, services and elements of the built environment that impact the global community in the following areas: Design with the developing world, transportation (clean water, sanitation, power, medical care and food) Sustainable buildings and transportation systems Information and computer technology enabled Devices for Better Living
The Laboratory for Engineering Materials is a prototyping facility in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Its main purpose is to aid Course 3 students in designing and building research- and class-related equipment and prototypes, but we are also open to all MIT students. Our equipment includes CNC machines, 5 3D printers, laser cutter, water jet, and many hand tools.
At the MakerLodge Glass Workers Club, we expose you the introductory level glass making skills [bead making, figurines, etc]. We’re a community of students and staff that love to make cool things in glass. Our goal is to learn, and share, skills for lamp work… a type of glass making used to make smaller glass items. We are not affiliated with the MIT Glass Lab (glass making of larger, more complex pieces) and our Mobius credentials don’t apply there, but share their passion for working in glass.
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.
