The Fab Academy is a Digital Fabrication Program directed by Neil Gershenfeld of MIT’s Center For Bits and Atoms and based on MIT’s rapid prototyping course, MAS 863: How to Make (Almost) Anything.
The Fab Academy began as an outreach project from the CBA, and has since spread to Fab Labs around the world.
The program provides advanced digital fabrication instruction for students through an unique, hands-on curriculum and access to technological tools and resources.
The course intends to provide instruction and supervises investigation of the mechanisms, applications, and implications of digital fabrication.
Here is where many new fab lab managers, gurus, teachers and makers get their training in digital fabrication.
