THIRDwave is an investigation into the ways that digital fabrication technology is informing what many are calling the third wave in the industrial revolution. Through coursework at the dFAB at MICA, students and educators asked themselves, what can we, as makers, create with this technology, and how can what we create change our world?

In the spirit of MIT’s Fab Lab community outreach project, FAB LAB DC is a high-tech, fabrication laboratory/community workshop in the heart of the Nation’s Capital to advance creativity, innovation, and collaborative projects.
FAB LAB DC fosters the creative community by providing access to digital fabrication technology, rapid prototyping, and the global Fab Lab network. Fab Labs enable people to use technology to create, experiment and produce, shifting the paradigm away from people merely “consuming” technology toward using technology to create solutions.
With a focus on life-long learning and emphasis on investigative teamwork, FAB LAB DC is bringing a range of educational opportunities for people of all ages, including access to the international Fab Lab network and Fab Academy, which extend opportunities for information sharing, research, and broader social impact.
FAB LAB DC is for local community members, life-long learners, inventors, entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals.
