Description: In an effort to expand experiential learning opportunities at University of California Irvine, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and The California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technologies have established FABWorks, a new facility that reinvents the way people create and innovate. FABWorks, located in the Calit2 building offers a space where students, faculty and the community can design and fabricate ‘almost’ anything. Users have access to a host of machines and services: personal digital fabrication systems, entrepreneurship services, IP development, business plan development, market analysis, and even global manufacturing services. Users also have access to faculty, research groups and more. FABWorks houses prosumer grade equipment including 3D printers and scanners, cnc machines, laser cutters, electronics workbenches, industrial sewing machines and more. FABWorks provides space for those interested in hands-on advanced manufacturing experience, and creates a hub where creativity can accelerate next-generation technologies. Sarah Hovsepian is the Director of FABWorks at UCI (http://fabworks.eng.uci.edu). She helped establish FABWorks as her second fab lab, with prior experience having established her first fab lab at NASA Ames Research Center. (949 824 5667, shovsep1@uci.edu)
