Welcome to FabLab NOLA!
Sixth graders have begun classes at FabLab NOLA, Lycée’s newest addition to its Thinking Outside the Classroom program. On their first day, students learned to design a project – in this case, Mardi Gras doubloons – on Adobe Illustrator, then print out their design using FabLab’s 3D printer. Within a few hours, students were able to experience the design process on a small yet memorable scale. We can’t wait to see students developing ideas on how design can be used to address issues affecting New Orleans communities, including housing and public spaces.
