Hello Fellow FAB-LABers!
Just a reminder that we have another FABFRIDAY opportunity tomorrow, Sept. 26 from 12:30-3:30pm. We will take the first 10 minutes to allow folks to briefly update, (including a new participant who will be assisting with coordination of a Spring 2015 Maker Faire). Various equipment training opportunities will be offered by Mike Cropp. All are welcome!
Maker Faire Flyer from a West Coast Event….We’re coordinating now to do this at UW-Stout spring 2015.
Mary Hopkins-Best, Randy Hulke, Chancellor Bob Meyer, and Sylvia Tiala were invited to by Dr. Steve Yahr to the Three Lakes School District’s ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 in Three Lakes, Wisconsin. This is the first K-12 Fab Lab in the state of Wisconsin. See the News 12 story and video at: http://www.wjfw.com/stories.html?sku=20140917174135
Progress has been made. Yesterday I installed the new graphics card that the Discovery Center ordered for us. It was an easy install and the Kinect Scanner is working great. We now have the ability to scan at the macro level all the way down to small. Who wants to tackle the micro – level scanning??
Our summer work has progressed! We have started the FAB-FRIDAY Campus Cohort, open to all UW-Stout faculty, staff and students interested in learning more about the FABLAB. Our cohort currently consists of people working in the FABLAB, want to work in the FABLAB or want their students to have the opportunity to work in the FABLAB.
Join the FABLAB Cohort in the UW-Stout FABLAB Fridays 12:30pm until you’re tired!!

The goals of our FAB-FRIDAY Cohort
1) Communicate upcoming and ongoing FABLAB opportunities.
2) Share knowledge, ideas and resources among the cohort and broader community to build capacity and create infrastructure that supports the FABLAB.
3) Build, create, experiment, explore, solve problems and create opportunities for a truly transdisciplinary work environment.
