MechSE MakerWorks Club - Elite Volunteers Passionately Shaping Our Maker Culture
MechSE MakerWorks Club at Illinois
Inspired by our past and amazing Illinois student clubs, MechSE MakerWorks Club will be created to shape and own the maker experience for our undergraduate students. The club’s mission is to create and sustain an Illini engineering maker culture that enables peers to receive equal opportunity to learn and safely use available tools and machines, while maintaining a safe, clean, and organized environment that impresses and inspires peers, alums, donors, guests, and future users.
How it Works...
The club will commence in operation by end of Fall 2022, with a complete rollout during Spring 2023. Below are early conceptual figures identifying key roles and responsibilities. These will all be reviewed with the chosen inaugural leaders and directors of the MechSE MakerWorks Club.
How one joins this elite club...
All who have interest in making, understanding how things are made, and how to maintain and troubleshoot our toys and machines may join the club and begin their ascent up the ranks. For now, please contact the Director of MakerWorks if you have interest at email@example.com.
Within MechSE, a student may ascend to a Journey Maker 1. To reach higher, a student should consider joining a registered student organization that builds cars, such as Society of Automotive Engineers teams. There, Mark Pinson offers training classes on metal machining techniques that will enable a student to ascend to Director.
In honor of the time invested, the unwavering commitment, and the willingness to embrace this new club, honorary inaugural members are undergraduate students Maxwell Johnson and David Parker.
Our past members, an awesome bunch. Go Illini!
