The Lab provides access to digital fabrication tools in an inclusive environment to inspire creativity and innovation.

The Lab features a variety of easy-to-use tools and equipment from local startups and established companies. It contains small creative and crafts materials, and flexible small-space tools such as a multi-functional 3D desktop printer, sewing machines, microcontrollers, robotics kits, other fine machining and textile processing tools.
