The Maker Lab was created to help students get involved with making and creating. These labs are available to students of IIT Madras so future students can have a chance to make creative projects. It was designed to do this originally; its purpose was to help students get in and make. Students who use the space are interested in what others are working on when in the Maker Lab. Having this space has also allowed for a Maker Club to form on campus for students to work on projects together.
