University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign


Our workshops allow you to explore the tools the Lab has to offer at your own pace.

We host a variety of workshops for groups of kids (ages 9+) or undergraduates students that can be arranged on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, teachers, 4-H leaders, librarians and other youth educators can book specialized professional development training sessions to learn Fab Lab technologies and techniques, including how we run specific workshops and camps.

Fab Lab Weekend workshops are for people 18+ who want to learn how to use the tools and machines in the lab by creating a project they get to take home! Learn by doing and gain confidence in your making skills every Saturday afternoon. Click on the graphic above to sign up, or if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us!
