"Digital fabrication is wonderful for students to experience at any age. The idea that you can take your abstract thoughts and ideas and make a physical object out of them is very empowering.”  

- Chris Wiemer, Stoughton High School

 

 

Mackenzie Bennin WiFAB Retreat
Wisconsin Teachers at the UW-Stout Fab Lab / UW-Stout

"I knew very little about Fab Lab equipment or how to build a curriculum around that. But after this week-long workshop we've had and really diving into it and thinking about it, I feel like I am more prepared as an educator. And that is something I can bring back to my school and share with everybody there."  

- Mackenzie Bennin, Granton Area School District
