Steam Teachers Rescources Computer Science Education educator resources

FabLab has a number of resources for Educators and Teachers. We are invested in providing STEAM trainings for educators including digital rapid prototyping, electronics, art, design, engineering and much more. We have designed Arduino kits to teach kids about circuits and provide an introduction into coding. FabLab develops curriculum for hands-on project-based field trips for ages 7 ++, that utilize the equipment and software at our Lab.

If you interested in individual or group private lessons for laser, 3D printing, electronics and coding. Please contact us for rates and scheduling.

Day Camps

2020-11-06T13:44:03-08:00

We provide a series of hands-on project base camps for youth (ages 8-15) to visualize and engineer their ideas. Camps are typically 1/2 day for 5 days.  We support STEAM-based learning through these camps and provide practical skills that can be implemented in rapidly developing technology industries. Our most successful camps have been our Python coding camps and our Raspberry Pi camps, ideal for your little coders. In addition to FabLab Camps we host and collaborate with local museums and organizations.

Due to Coronavirus restrictions, in Lab camp size has been limited to 5 campers. Virtual options have been added to camps that can accommodate virtual instruction. Please see additional information on the registration page for each camp.

Our camps have been a huge success in the past thanks to the support from our community! This year we have the added support of Tacoma Creates which gives us the ability to add a greater number of scholarships to City of Tacoma residents! If you have any questions for camps, please contact us.

Circuits & Coding Kits

2020-11-09T15:42:50-08:00

These kits are great to learn the basics to building circuits using and Arduino board. The introduce coding and allow you to design your own character. Each kit contains a servo that moves the head left and right.

Field Trips

2020-11-09T15:38:23-08:00

Would you like your students to have the opportunity for a hands-on learning experience with digital technology? We provide field trips that are catered to the specific class learning goals and skills. Our space allows us to host up to 16 youth comfortable at a time. For younger groups, we do request several chaperons to assist with student development.  We also provide onsite programming for classrooms. Contact Gaby Orozco, FabLab’s education coordinator, at gaby@fablab.com to discuss programming.

Professional Development

2020-11-06T13:45:23-08:00

Today, technology is rapidly developing, and at FabLab Tacoma we have professionals within the industry who are eager to share their knowledge. We provide training on equipment, software, and programming to implement in a classroom environment. We are involved with the Career and Technical Development Education program at Tacoma and Clover Park School Districts.
