FAB LAB INITIATION
Interested in the learning by doing approach? Would you like to invent or alter an object but don’t know where to start and don’t have the tools needed? We’ll provide the supervision, space, and resources to carry out your wildest projects. This is possible thanks to the Fab Lab at the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier.
Over the course of a 2-hour workshop, complete a turnkey project and take your creation home with you!
2 activities to choose from:
- Introduction to electronics and micro welding
- Creation of a 2D design using the computer and the laser-cutting machine
What is a Fab Lab?
It is a place featuring a multitude of tools (hammer, saw, 3D printer, laser cutter, etc.) and a do-it-yourself philosophy focused on repairing rather than throwing out and on pushing the limits of creativity by working together. Thus, students come to understand the dynamics of technological research through a specific project. For more information on Fab Labs, visit www.echofab.quebec/en/ and www.fabfoundation.org
