ABOUT THE FAB LAB
Located in the Hanson Technology Center on Lake Michigan College’s Benton Harbor Campus, the Fab Lab is a community space for people to learn science, technology, engineering and math skills through hands-on learning. Students can experiment with digital fabrication technology including 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, and Vinyl Cutters.
The Fab Lab is designed for students to develop problem-solving skills by trying to make things, sometimes failing, re-thinking and trying again to make the design better. LMC encourages creative thinking, determination and exposure to new technologies.
