About Camp Fab Lab

The Fab Lab specializes in introducing learners to a variety of forms of rapid prototyping and iterative design. A combination of many of our most popular activities, Camp Fab Lab is several days and includes different components depending on the age and experience of participants. All workshops include:

  • Instruction with Inkscape, Silhouette Studio, 3D design programs and other software
  • A variety of concepts related to drafting and design, imagination, remixing, graphic design and problem-solving
  • Each participant will get to take home a variety of items they’ve created over the week, such as stickers, soldered LED badges, laser creations, 3D printed monsters, small electronics gizmos, plushy characters, embroidered patches and 3D scans of themselves!

Please note: The last (5th) day is open lab time for participants to apply the skills they’ve learned and interests they’ve cultivated to pursue projects in a less structured open-lab format – it is optional
