Students will learn to use commercially available technologies to "conceptualize, design, develop, fabricate and test" objects. This course will cover the computer software and contemporary tools needed for cutting, milling, engraving, electrical and rapid prototype development. The fab lab is designed to explore interests in graphic design, visual arts, business, computer-assisted design, physical and natural science, and mathematics, as well as engineering and other advanced technologies.
