A Fab lab refers to digital fabrication laboratory. It is a place for learning and innovation: a place to play, to create, to learn, to mentor, to invent.
To be a Fab Lab means connecting to a global community of learners, educators, technologists, researchers, makers and innovators- -a knowledge sharing network that spans 100 countries and 24 time zones. Because all Fab Labs share common tools and processes, the program is building a global network and a distributed laboratory for research and invention.
Fab Labs typically include: Hardware and Software
