What We Hope to Achieve

What We Hope to Achieve | CanMakeMobile | Scoop.it

The idea driving the CanMakeMobile is the belief that the innovation potential of people can be unleashed by providing them access to the modern tools of production.  Through hands-on demonstrations of digital fabrication tools, materials and open source hardware, our hope is to engage minds and spark enthusiasm for the "making"of things.
