WHAT IS FAB LAB
Fab Lab is the educational outreach component of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA), an extension of its research into digital fabrication and computation. A Fab Lab is a technical prototyping platform for innovation and invention, providing stimulus for local entrepreneurship. A Fab Lab is also a platform for learning and innovation: a place to play, to create, to learn, to mentor, to invent. To be a Fab Lab means connecting to a global community of learners, educators, technologists, researchers, makers and innovators- -a knowledge sharing network that spans 30 countries and 24 time zones. Because all Fab Labs share common tools and processes, the program is building a global network, a distributed laboratory for research and invention
WHAT IS FAB LAB EGYPT
Fab Lab Egypt is a community makerspace founded in 2012 by young Egyptians. The lab is a member of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Fab Lab global network since 2012. It is a digital fabrication lab and a community-run public makerspace where anyone can make almost anything, from electronics to furniture and installations. Young children, college students, entrepreneurs and businesses materialize and prototype their ideas in the lab. They can also get together to share knowledge, and collaborate on projects and hands-on activities. We share our machines, tools, skills, resources and ideas with the community to create new opportunities for economic and social benefit Fab lab Egypt is an environment that promotes innovation and education by providing:
- Collaborative open makerspace equipped with digital fabrication and prototyping machines & tools
- Hands-on workshops & training using MIT based curriculum
WHY FAB LAB EGYPT
Since Fab Lab Egypt (FLE) launch in 2012, we have been pushing to spread the digital fabrication knowledge and making concept among different sectors including colleague students, Entrepreneurs and industrial sector as well.
Our technical support service came from the belief that digital fabrication can provide fast and reliable solutions.
Fab Lab Egypt has been taking a leading role in merging between the industrial sector, digital fabrication, fast prototyping and mass production by developing solutions, Prototypes and products for well-known companies, manufacturing facilities and SMEs.
We work through an experienced team of technical support facilitators who cover a wide range of specialties.
