Download the Case Study
Products in this study:
Develop a Fab Lab/Makerspace that allows for hands-on learning in a fun space with components such as 3D printers, laser engravers, desktop CNC’s and a collaborative whiteboard; along with drawing software and curriculum programs. The Fab Lab/Makerspace is not only for the student’s education, learning and job skills. It is also about becoming a part of the culture of the Badger community and allowing opportunities for the public to utilize the space.
“This semester we have begun an Independent Study course in the PHabLAB for an elective credit. Students apply for the course and are accepted based upon some minor qualifications (GPA, attendance), and then are assigned a class hour in the PHabLAB. These students are trained on the equipment and assist students and staff with the equipment during those class hours. We just NC3 certified one student on the 3D printers and we’re hoping to have four more by May.”
