Within the university we have created a fab lab principally for students, we plan to extend through our Centre for Lifelong Learning although we have linked up with one of our local secondary schools.
Based in Glasgow, Scotland we have a fablab that has principally been created for our students to use, we already attract a membership from a vast range of students, staff, courses and departments. We have used the lab in a link to our local secondary schools and intend to extend access to the fablab through our Centre for Lifelong Learning. Set within the Design and Technology facilities which are part of the Faculty of Education the lab is allowing us to link between departments which have never worked together in the past. Currently projects are small and based on students project work as part of their course. Now in the second year of joining the fab academy we intend to be involved in the fab academy each year allowing students to develop their skills and to take on tasks within the fablab. We are very keen to develop international links so please get in touch.
