Mobile Maker Cart

About the Mobile Maker Cart program

The Mobile Maker Cart program consists of several maker kits available for hands-on tinkering and prototyping at your home, dorm, office or classroom. The kits can be checked out at the Engineering Library as you would check out a library book. Your prototyping and tinkering can now be done wherever and whenever you prefer. Hand carts are available to help you transport the kits back to your workspace and the kits are small enough to easily fit into the trunk of your car. Remote tech support and prototyping consultation are also available.
