Starting or building upon your Fab Lab might feel intimidating. But isn't it exciting, too? Here are some resources to ensure your Fab Lab is a success that will set your students on the right track with the tools they need.
Fabrication Laboratories (Fab Labs) Grant Program
The goal of the Fabrication Laboratories (Fab Labs) Grant Program is to support the growth of a talent pipeline in the state of Wisconsin through the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). The program is designed to support hands-on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) education by assisting public school districts with equipment purchases used for instructional and educational purposes in fabrication laboratories in Wisconsin schools.
The open Fab Lab environment enables students to learn the skills necessary to thrive in the 21st-century global economy. Fab Labs may also serve as a local economic development tool, providing a resource for entrepreneurs, businesses and inventors through community access.
If you have any questions about the Fab Lab Grant Program, please contact the WEDC at 608-210-6700.
