MakerMobile Needs You !

Here’s what we need to build a world-class mobile learning facility. Some of the items on this list are big, some are small. Please take a moment to see if you might have something to offer the project. Not everything has to be new, but it does have to be in good, safe operating condition. Monetary donations are of course also welcome. You can contact us by emailing team at makermobile dot org
