What is a Fab Lab?

Fab Labs grew out of MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld’s dream of providing everyone with access to the state-of-the-art prototyping and fabrication facilities available to large corporations and universities. In a Fab Lab, people can unleash their creativity by creating “products for one,” unique objects that meet that individual’s specific needs. Entrepreneurs can also design and prototype products to start or grow their business or organization. Whether you want to build a replacement part, create a unique piece of art, or design a product for your startup business, East Troy High School’s Fab Lab will help you create your own unique products.
