Fabrication Lab: a digital workshop model created by MIT that is equipped with laser cutters, routers, 3D scanners, 3D printers and programming tools where learning is both hands-on and student-centered.

A fab lab is a true catalyst for interdisciplinary instruction, enabling teachers and students to create connections between subjects that would traditionally remain in isolated curriculum areas.

The fab lab at Fulton Public Schools is leading to innovative thinking and problem solving skills. This type of innovation will lead to new products and processes that sustain Missouri’s economy in future years. Our fab lab is not designed to deliver knowledge but to create conditions where students build their own knowledge through exploration and the reconciling of new information with what the student already knows.

Our goal: Develop a set of services to improve student performance through the adoption of emerging technology-enabled, student-centered learning approaches. We believe that this project will measurably improve student performance in a sustainable environment by developing a practical approach to transforming and supporting school districts engaged in student-centered learning practices.

As the project matures, we predict students will become effective 21st century citizens through the development of collaborative and technological skills, while demonstrating a positive attitude toward discovery–based learning.
