How to engineer and disseminate powerful, low-cost design and fabrication technologies at a grassroots level.


The Grassroots Invention group (GIG) is developing a suite of low-cost, powerful personal computation and fabrication technologies along with innovative idea dissemination methodologies to give individuals and communities greater independence over their own learning and development. We are actively working with our international partners to ensure that the tools we build and disseminate can be locally reproduced, extended, and appropriated in a variety of social, cultural, and economic contexts.
