How to Make (Almost) Anything - Open House!
Last fall, the physics department hosted a section of the MIT course, "How to Make (Almost) Anything" for the third year. This course covers a wide range of fabrication techniques, including laser cutting, 3D printing, PCB fabrication and design, embedded processing, molding and casting, and composites. Students in the Harvard-based section of the course attended the course-wide meetings at MIT and did the hands-on work at Harvard Physics teaching labs in the Science Center.
This course was designed to be accessible to anyone with basic computer skills, but it contains plenty to interest and challenge those at all levels of expertise. Students come from a wide range of fields including art and design, business, law, humanities, education, and technical fields, and have been undergrads, grads, postdocs, and staff.
The Open House for students' final projects is on January 31st, 4:30 – 7:00 PM, in Science Center Room 102
All are invited!!!
