Fablab Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, Amsterdam

Fab Academy is the distributed educational platform of the worldwide network of Fab Labs. It started as an extended version of the How to make (almost) anything class at MIT, and is becoming an opportunity for new labs managers, as well as advanced inventors to acquire skills on digital fabrication. Furthermore, Fab Academy is evolving to a Master’s program through the development of applied research projects and thesis, as well as explore expanded training programs related with specific conditions of labs and communities.

To follow the complete programme an investment of € 5.000,- (no VAT, as participants pay this to FabLab Barcelona) is needed. One module of the programme comes to € 500,-).
