慶祝地球日 MIT幫你修東西

Celebrate Earth Day by Fixing at MIT

Celebrating repair through do-it-together hands-on STEM-oriented fix-n-learn community-based discovery and disassembly where you actively engage in the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of your item. Leave empowered to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large.

So bring your broken, non-functioning things -- electronics, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, fabric items, etc.-- for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We'll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether we fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked. (Looking at how things are made now provides a unique and important perspective as we transition to Design-centric Thinking, Manufacturing on Demand and Continuous Integration. It’s important to consider designing, engineering, and manufacturing for durability, reliability, sustainability, maintainability, serviceability, repairability from the start.)
