Concept

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

As you already know, the Fab Academy is a digital prototype testing and manufacturing training program led by Dr. Neil Gershenfeld, Director at MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms.

It is a unique and innovative six-month international training program that allows people to obtain a partial or complete Fab Diploma. Diplomas are validated on 20 exercises (1 per week) have been completed and by submitting a final personal project. In 2012, 70 students in seven fablabs in the world participated in the program.

We “transform lines of computer code into real objects” by learning to control digital machines that are well known in the Makers community including: 3D printers, laser cutting machines, vinyl cutting machines, numerical milling machines and a variety of tools and open source software.
