Open Source Maker Labs provides resources for its members by making equipment, open source technology, knowledge, and projects more accessible. We share ideas on new and unique applications of technologies to encourage innovation, prototyping, and creation. Learning facilitated at our lab often involves 3D printing, electronics, robotics, and the use of CNC tools, and focuses on practical skills. OSML strongly advocates for applying these skills and the knowledge gained creatively, giving the community the freedom to create, invent, and innovate!
Our lab is built on the following principles:
- Open source accelerates innovation through freedom of collaboration
- Technology enables advanced customization on a small scale
- Learning technical skills allows individuals to apply their knowledge, enabling creative expression
