It is an outreach program of FabLab UAE project to spread awareness of digital fabrication and to promote technical and training services rendered by FabLab UAE with all of its tracks. This movable laboratory offers most of the devices, equipment and programs required for the digital fabrication but concisely visits schools, universities, other education institutions and public places to provide the targeted people with an opportunity to experience the digital fabrication and make them familiar with how to turn their creative ideas into a tangible reality by virtue of the latest devices and technologies. This project was implemented in collaboration with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority. Targeted: 12yrs and above.
A project aimed at the development of creative thinking in children and to build a creative and innovative figures by learning the basics of digital fabrication. In FabKids children can do educational and recreational activities that will encourage innovation and creative thinking. Children uses a lot of modern day technology, ignoring the potential of these devices, what if we were able to guide children to use modern technology in what is useful to them and their community?
