Fall 2017 Digital Fabrication Course

August 28, 2017

The physics department is hosting a section of the MIT course, "How to Make (Almost) Anything," for the 4th time! 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 will attend the course-wide meetings at MIT and do the hands-on work at Harvard Physics teaching labs in the Science Center. Harvard students must cross register at MIT for this course.

This course is designed to be accessible to anyone with basic computer skills, but it contains plenty to interest and challenge for those at all levels of expertise. We will compose a diverse section: students in the past have come from a wide range of fields including art and design, business, law, humanities, education, and technical fields, and have been undergrads, grads, and postdocs and staff.

The first class meeting is Wednesday September 6, 2016, 9:00AM-12:00 noon in E14-633 (Media Labs) at MIT. We will hold an information session on Wednesday, August 30, from 7-9 PM in Science Center 102. Students and mentors from last year's class will be present to answer questions about the class. Please drop in during that time to learn more.

We will also be in the Cabot Library Discovery Bar Monday to Friday, August 28-Sept. 1, 4:00-6:00PM. For more information about this offering, see: http://fab.physics.harvard.edu.
