Wisconsin school districts encouraged to apply for Fab Labs Grants
10 Oct 2023
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is accepting applications for the eighth year of its Fabrication Laboratories (Fab Labs) Grant Program, which provides funding to help public schools build or expand fab labs.
The grant program supports hands-on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) education by assisting public school districts with equipment purchases for instructional and educational purposes in fab labs. Fab labs are high-tech workshops with the latest equipment, including computer-controlled manufacturing components such as 3D printers, laser engravers, and computer numerical control routers.
