The San Diego Public Library and FabLab San Diego have partnered to provide public access to a mobile makerspace at the North University Community Branch Library at 8820 Judicial Drive, San Diego, 92122, from April 15 to May 15.
The mobile makerspace is a 30-foot trailer on loan from the Center for Bits at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to FabLab San Diego. It includes 3D printers, laser cutters, and computer controlled fabrication machines found in fablabs world-wide. There will be making related activities for all ages.
The San Diego installation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Global Fab Lab Network was sited in 2007, with the aim of actualizing ideas by turning concepts into physical forms through design and fabrication. From this origin, FabLab SD has focused on connecting youth and adults with technology through education, and developing partnerships locally to create site-specific learning programs. With roots in the Maker, Hacker and DIY Movements, FabLab SD is currently focused on providing resources for local inventors, developers, makers, and innovators through learning opportunities. FabLab San Diego has served the community of San Diego by granting learners of all ages a free space where we offer multiple ways to explore digital fabrication, experiment and create.
