More than 200 students started the journey last January, with ~50 participating Fab Labs from around the world. At FAB11, 140 students graduated after ~6 months learning How to Make (Almost) Anything. Endless nights, last pushes and pulls, broken archives, failing circuit boards and more… have ended into an incredible catalogue of skills, knowledge and projects built by instructors, faculty and mostly by students.
The Fab Academy is assembling the future leaders of digital fabrication in the world. This is the 6th edition of the only distributed university and educational program in the world. Next years edition will start in January as usual, and will grow into an extended program including a thesis development in order to take final projects into the next level for research or distribution. Stay tuned.
