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.


Getting Involved


Only current students that had training & access AND have completed the Summer Checklist will be able to enter the labs. Lab trainings will not be offered over the summer. Please abide by Cornell’s updated rules and requirements regarding masks. While appointments are no longer required, we ask that you continue to use the Sign In/Out sheets for both labs.

This summer, you can contact Smith Charles regarding lab-specific issues and Harris Miller regarding card access, parts orders, and other administrative questions (contact information is listed at the bottom of the page).
