Mason Innovation Exchange (MIX)

Make your way to our makerspaces and bring your inspirations and ideas to life. Whether you're working in textiles, robotics, gaming, electronics, digital fabrication, or something else, we can help you with advice, training, and hands-on learning.

MIX it up at the MIX

With the goal of encouraging and celebrating entrepreneurship and innovation across the whole of the university, George Mason University has begun to build out a network of on-campus entrepreneurship-focused collaboration and maker spaces called the Mason Innovation eXchange (MIX). Programs encourage multi-disciplinary collaboration across all of Mason’s schools and degree programs (e.g. engineering, science, business, liberal arts). It is the place at Mason where groups can come together to develop ideas, research problems, craft solutions, and start companies. We currently operate at two locations at the Fairfax campus, the MIX@Fenwick and the MIX@Innovation.

Visit our official MIX website for more information.

The MIX provides resources such as:

  • Hand and power tools.
  • A virtual reality room with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
  • Screen printing, vinyl cutter, and heat press.
  • Sewing and embroidery machines.
  • CNC Laser cutter and engraver.
  • Soldering station.
  • Micro-electronics.
  • AR/VR consoles.
  • Electronics prototyping tools, including breadboards, jumpers, multi-meters, and oscilloscopes.

Come be a part of a community of innovators. You might help each other find the next great idea.
