About Open Design Lab

Can’t get enough of the Fab Lab? Come back for an entire week of open hours! Participants are invited to come in to pursue projects of virtually any kind as individuals or in groups. Staff will be available to guide them in the process, teach relevant software and otherwise experiment with them to make their ideas come true. Registration cost does not include materials, so participants will need to work out a budget for their planned activities on the first day and bring additional funds or materials. Please note that participants will NOT be able to play Minecraft during this camp.

Learning Process and Outcomes

We will encourage attendees to collaborate in groups based on mutual interests and machine availability.

Take-Home Creations

This depends entirely on what youth choose to invest their time in!
