Fablab

The Fablab program began as a collaboration between the Grassroots Invention Group and the Center for Bits and Atoms at the Media Lab at MIT. Fabrication laboratories, or Fablabs, are workshops that offer the technological and the material infrastructure required to enable the aim of making “almost anything”. There are currently over 2000 Fablabs in about 150 different countries, one of which being Hisar’s own Fablab, The Idealab. With the aim of democratizing access to the tools for technical invention, Fablab provides a massive network for its members through websites, events and more.


Each year, Fablab organizes several events around the world to gather and showcase the latest projects of its members. This year, the Lemon team from Idealab traveled to Bali, Indonesia for the 7th Fabfest & Fabcity. Idealab actively maintains communication with the Fablab network throughout the year. It also strives to become a more sustainable environment and strengthen Hisar School’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (UN SDG’s) by following Fablab’s own manual on “aligning your Fab Lab/Makerspace with the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
