When & Where
Digital Fab LAB Learning Community Project / STEM Guitar Project
The Digital Fabrication Learning Community (DFLC) NSF ATE Project (#1104199) is establishing a pilot learning community that leverages digital and personal fabrication’s proven enrichment of STEM competencies and attitudes with learners and educators, while driving advanced technician development throughout the USA.
To accomplish this goal, the project will integrate multiple networks of Educational Fab Labs, Digital Fabrication Experts, STEM Learning Specialists, and Next-Generation Manufacturing (NSF ATE) Centers into an organization that shares all the resources and expertise in a mentoring spirit to establish and grow the pilot Digital Fabrication Learning Community
