Fab Labs
Started at MIT, FabLabs are now located around the world. They focus on learning by making. FabLabs make use of equipment like laser cutters, 3D printers, and CNC machines.

Fab Labs provide widespread access to modern means for invention, employing cutting-edge machines like lasercutters, milling machines, signcutters, and other soft- and hardware tools. The initiative began as an outreach project from MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms. Since then Fab Labs have spread around the world, from South Africa to the North of Norway. The range of projects and activities promote peer-to-peer project-based learning and problem solving.
