A new edition of the world’s largest distributed campus on digital fabrication is here!
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, MAS 863: 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.
2014 Schedule: http://www.fabacademy.org/class-schedule-2014/
Fab Academy courses require access to a participating fab lab. You can view the list of labs that participate in the Fab Academy program here: http://www.fabacademy.org/fab-academy-2014-sites/
Classes are taught in fab labs through video lectures by a global faculty. Hands-on class work is guided by instructors in the local labs.
Neil Gershenfeld’s global lectures begin on January 22, 2014. Global lectures take place on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 am – 12:00 pm EST (15:00 – 18:00 Spain). The lectures are recorded and are available online after class.
