AET Labs is pleased to announce Dig It. Fab It. Make It. 2018, New England’s premiere Fab Lab & Makerspace showcase. This is a unique opportunity for educators to see the design process in action, talk to the experts and hear and learn from academic STEM trailblazers.

Once again, with help from our industry partners at Stratasys, we’ll be presenting the most cutting-edge fab lab tech, tools and resources available for schools including:

  • 3D Printers for Plastics
  • 3D Printers for Metal
  • 3D Laser Scanning Devices
  • Laser Cutting & Engraving Machines
  • CNC Milling & Routing Machines
  • Wire Bending Machines
  • Fab Lab furniture
  • Space Planning & Design

This year’s event also features a round table discussion and Q&A with influential New England STEM educators on strategies and best practices for successfully integrating digital fabrication technologies into the classroom. The take away? Fresh ideas, lots of curriculum, sample parts, a PD certificate and just maybe a new MakerBot 3D Printer to bring back to your classroom!

We’ll be announcing our complete lineup of stellar vendors and  presenters in the coming weeks. Stay tuned and follow us on Twitter,  Facebook and LinkedIn for the most up-to-date news.

There is no cost to attend, however, registration is appreciated for planning purposes.
