Fab Lab

Opening Spring 2016

We’re thrilled to share the Museum will open the nation’s first early childhood Fab Lab. Fab Labs are high tech makerspaces, with machines like 3D printers and laser cutters, which build STEM skills through hands-on learning. A growing, global network, the Fab Lab model has increasingly been adopted by upper elementary, middle and high schools. However, there are no Fab Labs for young children… yet.

In collaboration with the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM (TIES) and the Fab Foundation, the Museum will prototype the first Fab Lab specifically for early childhood. Geared towards children 3 to 10 years old, our Fab Lab will offer a space where young visitors can use technology to find solutions to challenges and bring their ideas to life.

Watch for Fab Lab updates in our weekly emails or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
