From kindergarten to high school, discover how schools, libraries, and programs around the country have used Fab@School Maker Studio to create practical, affordable makerspaces using paper, cardstock, and inexpensive digital fabricators. This session provides hands-on opportunities for getting comfortable with easy, paper-based digital design and fabrication software tools.
