Fab Lab Houston is here for teachers to get instructional learning opportunities, resources, professional development, continuing education, and help in applying new tools and technologies to the classroom.
Field Trips and Mobile Fab Lab
We have worked to make sure that Fab Lab lessons are aligned with relevant TEKS standards by grade level. Each experience targets elementary and middle school students by offering 4 themed experiences that provide a unique context for applying content learned in the classroom. You can find a variety of field trip or mobile Fab Lab opportunities for your students, such as: Robotics, Electricity and Circuits, Force and Motion, and STEAM.
Professional development workshops will be hosted onside at the lab and are highly interactive half-day sessions, focused on training teachers to use digital fabrication tools to help students apply knowledge and skills related to specific TEKS objectives. Teachers will learn four different STEM activities to be implemented in the classroom and offer ‘take home kits’ so teachers can immediately use what they learned and practice with their students.
