Fab Lab

Explore, innovate and create in hands-on classes such as 3D printing, electronics, basic engineering, computer programming, robotics and so much more.

FEATURED CLASSES

3D Design and Printing Classes
Get a firsthand view of the  Flash Forge Creater Pro in action as it builds an object layer by layer! Draw and design your very own three-dimensional objects with easy-to-use modeling software. 

Coding with Electronics
Use the Arduino to control custom circuits you construct. Learn the steps to make LEDs blink and a speaker play music. Experience the potential of this inexpensive and accessible tool.

Introduction to Soldering Basics
Build a simple circuit with a soldering iron and components. Learn to safely use a soldering iron correctly to join components and wires.

Introduction to Electronic Engineering
Build working circuits using common electronic components and a power source. Learn schematic symbols commonly used in diagrams.

2D Design for CNC Milling
Design a project with Cut2D desktop. The powerful CAD program provides a full set of tool path options for you to convert designs from simple graphics to CNC routing operations.
