Fab Lab

The Fab Lab is open! Coordinator Greg Buckland is excited to meet the Lena Park community, and start making awesome things together! We are on the 2nd floor, to the left of the gymnasium entrance – stop by or email if you are interested!

What’s a Fab Lab?

Fab Labs are community maker spaces where people young and old can make useful and beautiful things to benefit themselves and their communities. They began at MIT in 2006, and now there are over 1,000 around the world – including at Lena Park! Our Fab Lab is equipped with some extraordinary 21st century technology, including:

  • 3D Printers
  • Laser Cutter & Engraver
  • Vinyl Cutter
  • Digital Emroidery & Sewing Machine
  • Electronics Equipment
  • Hand Tool and Power Tools

 

We will be having intro classes to each of these technologies for anyone aged 13 and over. Additionally, we will have a Summer program for middle school students (rising grades 7-9). If you are interested, or if you want to come learn or make something, email us: fablab@lenaparkcdc.org – or call us (617) 533-8133 ext. 26 – or just stop by!
