FAB! seeks to build creative young generations with logical reasoning and social consciousness. To do so, FAB! offers training to professors from public high-schools so they can develop a curriculum that includes activities so that students can learn by doing and by experimenting. FAB! also develops digital fabrication workshops promoting complex learning and enhancing the understanding through the use and development of technology.
The idea of the organization is to provide young people with a plataform so they can learn to generate tangible ideas through technology and release their creativity using digital fabrication tools (such as 3d printers, robotics, laser cutting and programming). Participants always work in teams creating a sense of community and developing inventions or systems to help them solve local, community or social problems they face in their everyday life.
