FAB LAB is an all new hands-on STEAM education program that makes the world of technology accessible through creativity in a mobile Maker-space that can either come to you, or can be scheduled as a part of a visit to the Science Spectrum!
This mobile Maker-space gives students the opportunity to experience the STEAM-based Maker movement, and take their designs from computer screens to finished product using robotic machines.
Equipment Used in the Fab Lab Includes:
Computers & Software
Robotics & Drones
Fun construction materials
Fab Lab Programs:
(90 minutes+) for up to 16 participants at a time. Students work individually to design, then fabricate a unique project. Examples of projects include; acrylic cells, gliders, rubber band racers, dinosaurs, key tags and nametags, vinyl stickers and t-shirt decals. Projects can also be tailored to individual needs.
(2 hours+) for up to 30 participants at a time. Students work in teams to design, prototype, and test projects to meet an Engineering challenge. Examples would include fabricating a bridge to maneuver a robot across a river, or a delivery system for a drone to deliver a package. Students will be given time to prototype, test, and then redesign their project to better complete the challenge.
