The Fab Lab serves as a critical component enabling students to evolve their digital knowledge and skills utilizing a “project based” approach linking theory and practice. Students utilize a “hands-on, minds-on” approach to applying technology and engineering methods and design; they solve real industry challenges using a host of state- of-the-art digital based machines and systems. In 2007, Century was the first college in the region to install and implement a Digital Fab Lab and incorporate the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) based FAB LAB initiative across its curriculum in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) areas. The Century College ADM program was the result of over ten years collaboration with the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms and the Global Fab Lab Network. Century College ADM faculty are heavily involved with the Global Fab Lab initiative. Currently, there are over 2,500 Fab Labs installed around the world – with approximately 250 labs located in the United States. 3585 Highway 61 Vadnais Heights, MN 55110 For more information or a tour of the Fab Lab, contact Scott Simenson: At the Corner of Highway 61 and County Road E 651.735. 2265 • 45
