Welcome to the United States Fab Lab Network

The mission of the USFLN, in the spirit of the MIT Fab Charter, is to support digital and personal fabrication in academics, business, and community outreach:

In academics, the USFLN encourages Fab Labs to engage students and teachers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

In business, it promotes invention, entrepreneurship, and skills needed for a 21st-century global economy.

In community outreach, it makes resources available to empower underserved and non-traditional populations.
