The Cornell Maker Club (CMC) is a student-run club for experimenting with innovative technologies. We provide tools, work space, and a community for all interested members of Cornell’s campus.


Our purpose is to provide a space where motivated and creative minds can give shape to their ideas, and to help spread this passion through the campus and beyond.



Thank you for attending CMC Make-a-thon! Please look forward to other CMC events!
