FabClass, is the flagship FabLabz educational program for schools.
FabClass is a modular STEAM program consisting of a Kitbox with 10 projects and easy-to-assemble experiments and guided training/support. The program, tailored for ages 13 to 17, has 5 modules and introduces students to the foundations of programming and basic coding, Arduino boards and digital signals, analog signals and serial communication, robotics, power systems and motors, wireless communication via Bluetooth and advanced sensors.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
Arduino is an open-source hardware, software and content platform with a global community. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects. Arduino technology is used to:
Develop: At universities it is widely adopted in the fields of engineering, Internet of Things, robotics, art, and design, to name just a few.
Teach and learn: Many secondary schools use it with innovative techniques for cross-curriculum studies.
Play: Primary schools use toys powered by Arduino technology to introduce physical learning, logic, building skills, and problem solving. Arduino’s Immersive Educational Environment promotes the creative process through project-based learning, with a focus on student interaction and group collaboration.
