For Students

When you take an Inworks course, the process of innovation is demystified. In our prototyping labs you can learn to 3D print, solder a circuit, or grow a biomaterial. Because it’s important to make things that matter, you’ll learn the human-centered design process; it will guide you as you move from problem to prototype. But don’t expect to do it alone, because Inworks is a space that catalyzes meaningful collaboration. Students of all majors will find a place here.
