FabLab NI Visit Vibrant Exemplar Labs in USA

FabLab NI have just returned from a study visit to USA, where they visited Fab Foundation at MIT, RISD,  and a selection of established  Labs working to bridge divided communities through the medium of digital fabrication.  Eamon Durey from FabLab Nerve Centre said  “The trip proved to be both informative and inspirational. Some of the intervention programmes including “Learn to Teach, Teach to Learn” at South End Technology Centre in inner city Boston demonstrated exciting and dynamic modes of delivery that not only promote and advance the concept of inclusion and greater understanding, but also act as an effective  personal, social and economic development device.”

FabLab NI hope to embrace some of the concepts witnessed during the visit and incorporate them into future delivery programmes.
