Back to School 2021

We are so excited to get back to making after a difficult 2020-2021 school year and a break from the Fab Lab - CMSD's Fab Lab manager- Sarah Wallace, had a baby in the spring! We are working hard to come up with wonderful maker education and Fab projects teachers can do in their classrooms with or without digital fabrication equipment as well a calendar of workshops at EPC! We can't wait to see what great things CMSD can make!

2021 Fall Making

In order to ensure the safety of all people associated with the fab lab, the Mobile Fab Lab trailer will not be visiting schools in the fall of 2021. We hope to be back on the road and making with CMSD students all over the city in the spring of 2022.

Sarah Wallace will be working with individual CMSD teachers who are interested in bringing 3D printing, Electric paper/vinyl cutting or simple electronics to their classrooms. Please attend one of the Fab Lab Info Sessions to learn more (events listed below).
