The Gregory School Fab Lab is a space where students are inspired to imagine, conceptualize, design, and build. It's a place where tinkering, experimenting, and failing are encouraged and celebrated.

The Gregory School

The Gregory School's Fab Lab is the first and only school-based member of the MIT Fab Lab network in Arizona.

The Gregory School

Located in the bright and open center of our science building, the Fab Lab is a resource for everyone in The Gregory School community. It is common for faculty from different disciplines to come together in the Fab Lab and combine traditional lessons to help students experience deeper learning. Our Fab Lab is a forum for “why” instead of just “how.”

 

As a member of the MIT Fab Lab Network, our lab is not simply a facility for prototyping and 3D printing. We are part of a much larger community that collaborates beyond international borders, sharing knowledge, designs, and experiences. Someone making a project in New York should be able to send us the files and have the item created, fairly easily, in our science building at The Gregory School.

Precision Milling

Students use modern automated CNC systems with computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs.

Laser Cutting

High-power laser is used by students to fabricate prototypes in polymers, glass, wood, ceramics and other materials.

3D Printing

Auto CAD with 3D printing and scanning is used by students for experimental sample characterization, rapid-prototyping input, and reverse-engineering.

Programming

Students learn how to approach programming problems and devise solutions using various programming languages.
