Fab Academy is an intensive five-month program that teaches students to envi sion, design and prototype projects using digital fabrication tools and machines. The Fab Academy brings together a multi-disciplinary and hands-on learning
experience that can be taken in a Fab Lab; at it’s core, Fab Academy empowers students to learn by doing, inspires them to make stu locally, and encourages them to become active participants in sustainable cities and communities.  Fab Academy offers a distributed educational model: students learn in local workgroups (Fab Labs), with peers, 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 65 Fab Labs.

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.
