Fab Lab Activity Options
Choose one activity, guests get to take their fabrications home as a party keepsake.
Using a tablet, kids design the shape of an airplane wing and watch as their design comes to life on a laser cutter. Once the plane has been created, kids test and decorate.
Children design an object on tablets that can attach and travel down a zipline. Their designs are then cut out with a laser cutter and then tested and re-designed to increase speed and length traveled.
Children design a stamp on a tablet, then watch their designs being cut on the laser cutter, and then make a physical stamp, which they can use to create art.
Solar Night Light
Children create unique solar night lights using mason jars, colored cellophane, paint, glitter, and solar powered lights. They design paper inserts on a tablet that are cut out on the Fab Lab laser cutter and added to a night light.
