The Fab Academy is a Digital Fabrication Program directed by Neil Gershenfeld of MIT’s Center For Bits and Atoms and based on MIT’s rapid prototyping course: How to Make (Almost) Anything. The Fab Academy began as an outreach project from the CBA, and has since spread to Fab Labs around the world. The program provides advanced digital fabrication instruction for students through an unique, hands-on curriculum and access to technological tools and resources.
The educational program is subdivided in weekly assignments from rapid prototyping to additive manufacturing, programming, software development, electronics and interaction design. The classes are held directly by Neil Gershenfeld, who introduces all topics and personally reviews the assignments. In every Fab lab participating all students are follow by local instructors who guides them thorugh the development of the exercises.
Thanks to the wide range of Fab Labs involved, the Fab Academy is the biggest distribute network of education in the world. It’s unique structure offers the opportunity to interact and exchange information with a big community of students and tutors from all over the world.
