aka: “I just moved into the area / found out about you guys / am a high school student. Can I join MITERS?”
MITERS is an MIT student club — our space is small and we’re student-focused. If you’re looking for a workspace and/or to hang out with cool people, please check out these awesome local hackerspaces meant for public memberships:
- Sprout, the community education experiment (not a hackerspace)
- ArtisansAsylum, a much larger space with a larger range of tools than us
However, you are definitely welcome to visit and get to know us during build parties (Fridays at 7pm). You’re also welcome to visit anytime, but we may not be open / not many people may be here. See the Visiting page for more info.
We’re nerdly people very involved in our projects and sometimes we forget to say hi when people walk in the door — don’t by shy, introduce yourself and how you got here, and if you want to hear about MITERS / our projects, we’ll be happy to talk your ear off.
Do you take donations of ___?
It depends, email us and see.
Do you get any funding from MIT departments?
No, we maintain independence and are entirely self-funded by helping staff Swapfest, without which we wouldn’t exist. Please support us by visiting Swapfest! MIT’s Electronic Flea Market is held the 3rd Sunday of each month, April through October, at MIT’s Albany Street Garage on Albany St between Main Streets and Mass Ave in Cambridge. The gate opens for buyers at 9am and Swapfest ends at 2 pm. There is a small admission fee. See this post for more info: http://alum.mit.edu/pages/sliceofmit/2009/08/31/mit-flea/
