A Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop offering (personal) digital fabrication. (Source: Wikipedia
). As it is stated by MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld in a TED talk
, it is where your creativity can be unleashed and becomes a reality
The United States Fab Lab Network (USFLN )
is a connected network of Fab Labs who exchange knowledge, ideas, and resources to collectively empower people of all ages and backgrounds to experiment and invent new products to solve real world problems at local, national, and global levels. This year’s USFLN Symposium will be held at the Northwest Arkansas Community College in Bentonville, AR, March 21st through 23 rd. As a proud member of the United States Fab Lab Network (USFLN ), 3D Platform is bringing its large format 3D printing technology, together with large format 3D print samples to this year’s symposium.
This year’s USFLN Symposium will feature workshops on innovation and entrepreneurship development through Fab Labs & Makerspaces. Other presentations will focus on education, equipment, tech training, and start-up/sustainability of a Fab Lab.
The USFLN Symposium annually brings together Fab Labs and Makerspaces together to collaborate and learn best practices for programs and operations. It is the best opportunity to effectively network and learn from community centered, K12, and college based Fab Labs from around the U.S. If your organization is looking at starting a Fab Lab/Makerspace, this event is your most cost effective and time efficient way to learn from existing Fab Labs and also see demonstrations of various Fab Lab equipment in our vendors area.
