The Fab Lab is an engineering classroom designed to "WOW." The idea is for kids to learn NGSS engineering design standards, while being amazed at their own ability to use math, science, and technology to invent something new.
The lab has tons of high end equipment (laser cutters, 3D printers, CNC milling, robotics arenas, vinyl cutter and more than 100 computers from 3D augmented reality zSpace workstations to tiny Arduinos) to give an amazing science and engineering experience to students who come for field trips and teachers who come for training.
Visit the FabLab website for more details
