Engineering A Better Future!
I would like to recognize and thank all of our Summer Camp Sponsors. These businesses and organizations have provided funds to purchase summer camp supplies, supplemented the salaries of our summer camp workers, and/or provided scholarships to our 6 FABLAB Student Ambassadors. We could not provide such wonderful camps and educational opportunities at $100 per week without the help of these people.
About the FABLAB
A FABLAB consists of a suite of digital fabrication and rapid prototyping machines, including a large computer numerical control (CNC) router (the ShopBot), a vinyl cutter, a laser engraver, an electronics work bench, a 3D printer, and the accompanying computers and software for design, programming, and machine communications. This equipment allows students to use computer-aided design to make almost anything they can imagine. Fab Labs across the world share the same foundation of machines and processes and are linked through video conferencing and online tools.
