Manylabs supports independent scientists and makers pursuing "science for good" projects. We emphasize education and open data/open source because ultimately, we want learners of any age to have access to and become comfortable with data, scientific processes, and mathematical representations of the world. Practicing and teaching scientific principles is critical for our wellbeing. By using data to address real-world problems, we hope communities can make scientific arguments that can fuel civic change. Our residency program aims to increase collaboration within and outside of our own community, 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 residents.
Through a competitive application process, residencies are offered to individuals whose "science for good" efforts are poised to transform science, education, and beneficiary wellness. Our residents have deep portfolios in their respective areas of expertise bridging science, computer science, electronics, manufacturing, education, and/or educational technologies.
Applications are due on the 15th of each month, and 6-month terms for accepted applicants begin on the 1st of the following month. Interested in a tour before you apply? Please email our executive director, Dvorit: dvorit at manylabs.org
