About Fab Academy
In 1998, Professor Neil Gershenfeld started a class called “How to make almost anything” at MIT which was widely popular and attracted students from various backgrounds. Gershenfeld then started the first Fab Lab in 2002, which is a lab that is equipped with various tools, equipment, and materials. This started a worldwide fab lab movement that resulted in more than 1700 fab labs being built. Today, there are Fab Academy nodes all around the world and they offer a similar curriculum through a combination of online and offline lessons.
