Can Anyone Make Anything? Enabling Novices to Prototype Electronics

Can anyone make anything? Yes, we think anyone can do it! See examples of unexpected people making complex ideas real and ponder:

1. How do we create a tool that would empower anyone to make anything?
2. Why doesn’t it exist right now?
3. Where are we now in solving it?

What inspired you to begin investigating your topic or inspired you to make your project?:
Working as a biologist, Mark went to Ghana to teach local kids about public health. However, he found out that the reason public health wasn’t so good there was not because of any lack of knowledge, but rather the lack of infrastructure and tools necessary for change.

"I thought, why am I doing research in a lab, pipeting all day long, when I could be creating tools that could impact millions of people, and give them a way to move forward themselves."
