Work with Us
Manylabs supports independent researchers, educators, and makers pursuing "science for good" projects. We aim to support learning communities that can use data and scientific arguments to address real-world problems and fuel civic change. We hope to increase collaboration in science, technology, and civic engagement within and outside of our own building, inspiring project advancement and innovation.
The Manylabs workspace opened in March of 2015 and is under active development. Located in the SoMa area of San Francisco on Folsom Street, our building is a three-story repurposed industrial space. The first floor is an exhibit and event space, the second floor is a makers' workshop, and the top floor houses our open office for current members.
Made Possible by...
Manylabs is funded by a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
We invite you to collaborate with our community! We select applicants whose "science for good" efforts are poised to transform science, education, and/or beneficiary outcomes. Our members have deep portfolios in their respective areas of expertise bridging science, computer science, electronics, manufacturing, education, and/or educational technologies, and more. Members work and collaborate in our building, host events here, and participate in our community.
Applications are due on the 15th of each month, and accepted applicants begin membership on the 1st of the following month. Members pay reasonable monthly fees based on their individual use of the space. Interested in a tour before you apply? Please email our executive director, Dvorit at manylabs.org
