Within our FabLab team we have qualified teachers who have written bespoke STEM curriculum based creative projects to get young people involved and exposed to the working world of Engineering and Design Technology. We have had previous experience in offering these sessions/ courses and curriculum based learning programmes with youth groups, home schooling networks and a number of primary schools.
The packages we offer are entirely bespoke and can include an amazing variety of experiences that guarantee involvement, engagement and understanding from all areas of digital fabrication. This can include Laser Cutting, 3D Printing, T-shirt and mug design and printing, Lego Robotics, Lego Stop Motion videoing to name a few!
We ask you contact us directly for availability and pricing information on firstname.lastname@example.org. There is the option to experience our high end fabrication labs or alternatively we are able to bring the labs to you in the form of our amazing ‘pop up’ FabLab.
WORKSHOPS THAT WE OFFER
AN INTRODUCTION TO 3D PRINTING
An introduction to the world of digital fabrication. This will include tuition within 3D CAD design software with the intention of developing young people’s skills, awareness and understanding of how things are made in industry. Within this session young people will get to design and make bespoke key rings that are fully customisable, with demonstrations on the 3D printers with background information on prototyping and materials science.
LEGO NXT PROGRAMMABLE ROBOTS
A fantastic insight into coding, electronics and programming through block building, problem solving and interactive fun. This uses the Lego Mindstorms NXT2 robot and Lego coding software to challenge young people to creatively code making use of the robots key sensors including the motors, microphone and display. This is an excellent competition based activity that offers a far more creative insight into the world of electronics.
T-SHIRT & MUG DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE
An artistic and creative approach to digital design that’s brought to life with the manufacture of bespoke designed t-shirts and mugs for all involved! This is an excellent way of experiencing heat treatment machinery that brings your very own design ideas to life with something you can take away from the session and use and/ or wear!
An ideal way to develop maths, robotics and programming skills with the new Sphero. These can change colour, keep a music beat and compete in our bespoke maze and challenges. This uses iPad block building code as a platform to create an interactive learning tool that’s hand on, challenging and fun!
RETRO GAMING DESIGN IN SCRATCH
A session of Code- focusing on the success we have had at our regular Tech Club Programmables. This will focus on one of the key coding and programming areas linked to the National Curriculum. This will include the use Scratch for Coding using simple block building techniques. This is an ideal opportunity to learn new skills and/ or develop understanding within a quickly emerging market and one that promises to have lots of job opportunities for these youngsters in the future.
AN INTRODUCTION TO LASER CUTTING
An introduction to the world of digital fabrication. This will include tuition within 2D CAD design software with the intention of developing young people’s skills, awareness and understanding of how things are made in industry. Within this session young people will get to design and make bespoke room signs that are fully customisable, with demonstrations and use of the laser cutter with background information on materials and machine processing.
PRODUCT DESIGN & MANUFACTURE
This is a workshop day focused on everything hands on! The session will be focused on giving everyone the best opportunity to use new tools and equipment including everything woods and plastics. Young people will work on measuring and marking out, cutting and shaping, drilling and sanding and finishing during the production of their very own hand held game.
