Fab Lab Field Trips

Field trips to BNY Mellon Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center deliver dynamic, hands-on making experiences for school groups. Groups can choose between a project workshop or an engineering challenge.

Check out our homeschool workshops for Fab Lab opportunities geared toward homeschooled students.

Project workshop

In this one-and-a-half-hour workshop, each student will design and create a project using the digital fabrication technologies available in Fab Lab (machines can include laser cutters, vinyl cutters, 3D printers, or the CNC mill). Fab Lab education facilitators will lead the group through digital design using 2D or 3D design software and then students will learn how the computer-controlled machine works while fabricating their unique projects.

Capacity: Up to 15 students, plus two chaperones
Duration: 1 1/2hours
Cost: $270

Engineering challenge

During this one-and-a-half-hour engineering challenge, students will work in teams to design, prototype, and test their projects. Challenges are designed to use basic making materials as well as digital fabrication machines (such as the laser cutter, vinyl cutter, or 3D printer), so that teams are introduced to the software and hardware capabilities of the Fab Lab.

Capacity: Up to 30 students, plus four chaperones
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Cost: $450
