Ironpunk is a project funded by the Oregon Open Educational Resources group in collaboration with Lane Community College and the Lane Educational Services District. Its primary goal is to address the shortage of machining instructors at the high school and community college level by putting interactive instructional materials and tools on the machine shop floor. IronPunk will enable schools to teach CNC machining fundamentals on manual machines and prepare students for high tech jobs with less need for expensive CNC equipment.

The materials created through the IronPunk Project are licensed under a Creative Commons license allowing them to be enhanced, reused and remixed by students, teachers and enthusiasts keeping them fresh and innovative.
