First FabLab@School opens in Palo Alto: The Bourn Lab at Castilleja School, which opened March 16, is the first fabrication lab built for children, part of Stanford’s FabLab@School network.

The Bourn Idea Lab at Castilleja School, which had its official launch March 16, is a one-of-its-kind design and digital fabrication lab especially built for children, the first at a U.S. secondary school. As opposed to ordinary school robotics or "shop" labs, the Bourn Lab is equipped to teach a range of subjects from physics and engineering to art. It is the latest addition to a nascent network called FabLab@School, the brainchild of Stanford Asst. Prof. Paulo Blikstein.
