Fab Lab

Birchwood Fab Lab

Our vision for the implementation of the Birchwood Fab Lab is to create an accessible space for project-based, hands-on STEAM education.  This space will be an extension of classroom learning in grades PK-12.  Users will focus on the engineering design process to create solutions to common problems.  Rather than relying on a fixed curriculum, users will learn by designing and then creating objects of personal interest or import, making them inventors and innovators of their own learning.  As users gain a deep knowledge about the technology, the materials, and the engineering design process, learning will happen in an authentic, engaging, and a personal manner.  The Fab Lab will enhance the curriculum of the regular classrooms.
