Fab Lab Dronten is part of foundation Fablab Flevoland, which aims to interest (young) people in technology and design and making 3D printing and other modern technology accessible.
Fablab Dronten is a central Lab which supports a group of Library based labs also called Bibliolabs. At these Bibliolabs instructions and information is given to people of all ages and workshops and activities are organised on a regular base. Fablab Dronten serves as a place for more practical workshops, like building 3D printers, and as a place to educate volunteers, teachers and generally interested parties, as well as development for both educational and business purposes. Fablab Dronten is manned by a group of volunteers of various ages and backgrounds creating a balanced group and broad scope of specialisations and knowledge. Part of this group is a range of people who, due to various reasons, are without jobs and volunteer as a way to reintegrate with society and the labour market. Fablab Dronten owns a broad range or different machines: various 3D printers, a laser engraver/cutter, CNC Router, and a range of tools for handwork. These are used on a daily basis to create various things both useful and more artistic items.
