The purpose of MakePort is to promote learning, community and enterprise:

Learning – this is core to MakePort and it is not restricted to STEM or technical skills.  It is open to all forms of learning from crafts to language to art.

Community – all members of MakePort are part of a single learning ecosystem where sharing of ideas and respect for others is a non-divisible attribute.  

Enterprise – prototyping to create new products, up-skilling to gain employment happen when a learning community comes together – it is the goal of MakePort to provide these opportunities within the framework defined in this document.
