A Fab Lab is a place where anybody can make virtually anything. "There are Fab Labs opening across the world and we are lucky enough to have BEC Fab Lab here in West Cumbria. It has two bases; one in Cockermouth on Derwent Mills Enterprise Park and one at the West Lakes Academy in Egremont."
Part of the Fab Lab network, a global collection of small-scale workshops containing the tools for personal digital fabrication. Runs the FabLab Robotics Outreach Program (FROP) program, which aims to introduce basic engineering to school students, providing a practical approach to the concepts taught in class.
