Fab Lab Connect supports the growth of the Fab Lab Network by building, accelerating and connecting Fab Labs and providing Project Replication Grants. As we worked with grassroot organizations, unmet needs emerged for more compact and less expensive labs.
Schools expressed an interest in introducing their students to digital design and fabrication with a program that fits their requirements. School Fab Lab offers a solution that is more accessible to a wider audience.
School Fab Lab is a STEAM, project-based, integrated education program based on the constructionism theory and focuses on digital design, digital fabrication and robotics. We deliver the program through three main components: teacher training, online platform and machines.
Fab Labs are breaking down boundaries between the digital and physical worlds, this will radically change not only how we interact with everything but also who we are.
