Some exciting things are happening in the FAB Lab. People with a variety of interests and backgrounds are using the Fab Lab and getting their ideas ready for the marketplace. We have begun to collect success stories. As we receive permission to highlight them, they will be listed here. Click on each to see.

month at 12 noon, and 4 pm. See workshop and classes page for information
or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Bill Werneke has returned to focus on the school's Manufacturing Technology Program, but will continue to work closely with the lab. Kelly Zona will be staying on as Fab Lab Manager, and look forward to working with all interested persons. A few new assistants were hired as well: Allison, Richard, Zach, and LaNaya. Please welcome them to our staff.
While our assistants are still in training, access to the CNC router will be slightly limited. If you have a file you would like to run, please make sure to come in on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, with enough time to finish your file before 5pm. From then until close, there will not be anyone available to assist you with this particular machine
Additional courses, workshops, and projects are under development. Stay tuned for announcements.
