Kickstarters lead the way for anybody with a clever idea to crowd source funding to launch their prototypes. Inventor camp is a great way for youth to get involved with modern fabrication and design. Campers will be presented two design challenges as a means to learn vector and 3D design. Campers will then prototype their own ideas utilizing CNC design and arduinos. These mini projects will embrace laser cutting/etching, 3D printing, electronics, and soldering. The last day and half they will have an opportunity to prototype an idea.  

Class is supported in part by Tacoma Creates with need based scholarships available for residents of the City of Tacoma! Please contact for assistance.

Class size limited to 5 in Lab students.  Students will practice safe distancing and will be needing to wear face masks.  Fablab will also provide comfortable face shields to students. 

In Lab class may be cancelled if additional group restrictions mandated.
