Learn More About the Fablab

Course Description

The Fablab (Fabrication Lab) is a center for innovation, collaboration and learning. Students and faculty are able to utilize the Fablab to create parts, structures, signs, and various projects related to their respective curriculums. This innovative platform offers several computer-controlled tools and machines which support 3-D printing, Laser engraving, Vinyl printing, and CNC ShopBot tooling.

Using the ShopBot, users are able to design and print an array of products using several types of materials. Laser cutting uses a laser to cut various materials. It’s typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but can also be used in other settings. Laser cutting works by using a computer to control the output of a high-powered laser in order to cut material. These machines introduce learners to modern prototyping and fabrication equipment. By doing so, it gives them experience at an earlier stage than usual. This allows students to leave high school with marketable skills. This lab supports all other labs and classes within the school.
