Symposium 2019

Join us for our annual Symposium!

Hands-on workshops will be the main emphasis for this event as we have a chance to leverage the wonderful facility available in the Fab Lab at Northampton Community College.

Many equipment vendors will also be displaying a variety of Fab Lab/Makerspace gear and providing training sessions.

  • Learn and share material manufacturing skills
  • Immerse yourself in the Fab Lab/Makerspace mission
  • Inspire the art, skill, satisfaction, and educational benefits of Making and Experiential Learning
