Design and digital fabrication. Working sessions

10th october 2012 – 27th may 2013

LABoral organises workshops and seminars as part of the experimental programme in the prevention of early school leaving set in motion by the Directorate General for Professional Training, Curriculum Development and Educational Innovation at the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of the Principality of Asturias.

The three working areas are digital design and fabrication, audiovisuals and an introduction to creative programming.

Digital fabrication or computer aided manufacturing makes it possible to materialise physical objects from computer file designs, in this case using recycled equipment and materials. fabLAB provides first-hand knowledge of the processes and systems in which technology is an essential element, producing prototypes that allow participants to analyse the design and construction of an object, its component parts and the function it performs, thereby facilitating its usage and conservation.

Aimed to: a selection of groups of first and second-year students following the special support secondary school curriculum from 12 educational centres in Asturias.

Programme of activities funded by the Ministry for Culture and Sports of the Principality of Asturias
