Fab Academy offers a distributed educational model: students learn in local workgroups (Fab Labs), with peers, experienced mentors, and machines, which are then connected globally by content sharing and video for interactive classes, forming a network of 250 students in more than 75 Fab Labs all around the world.

The course is directed by Neil Gershenfeld from MIT’s Center For Bits and Atoms and based on MIT’s rapid prototyping course: How to Make (Almost) Anything. Fab Lab Oulu staff consists on five Fab Academy experience instructors, all of them with several years of experience teaching Fab Academy.
