FAB ACADEMY 2015 IS UNDERWAY!!!

 

 

"HOW TO MAKE ALMOST ANYTHING"
 
The Fab Academy is a Digital Fabrication Program directed by Neil Gershenfeld of MIT’s Center For Bits and Atoms and based on MIT’s rapid prototyping course, MAS 863: How to Make (Almost) Anything. The Fab Academy began as an outreach project from the CBA, and has since spread to Fab Labs around the world. The program provides advanced digital fabrication instruction for students through an unique, hands-on curriculum and access to technological tools and resources.

FABLAB EDP STUDENTS PAGES

Having a distributed version control system allows students to keep track of their work and their partners, and to hold complete control on the production of content. Each Fab Academy student builds its own website and keeps it synchronised with the Fab Academy main archive.
