Who have interest in setting up:
Fab Lab: As community inventors’ workshop offering digital fabrication on a personal scale & Aquaponic systems: As commercial scale operation to produce fish and herbs organically in a closed system with little impact on the environment to produce food locally.
Student's learning is supported through the power of Digital Media and Computer Simulations and bring engineering into the classroom
For both online and blended (as workshop style training sessions where practical activities are integrated into our Fab Lab and Aquaponics systems). Through digital media and scientific simulations.
Learn anywhere anytime!
For schools and corporations; e learning and instructional design that works
"See What we can DO for you"
Come and join us
Share our objectives and vision to redesign the Schools curricula to meet the standards of future education and training needs, Both here in Australia and overseas.
Paulo Blikstein "Educational digital fabrication labs that put cutting-edge technology for design and construction – such as 3D printers and laser cutters and robotics – into the hands of middle and high school students. Such labs are a place for invention, creation, discovery and sharing, a space of inquiry where everyone learns and knowledge gets integrated into personal interests and daily life. FabLearn Labs, which are embedded in technology, permit the acknowledgment and embracing of different learning styles and epistemologies, engendering a convivial environment in which students can concretize their ideas and projects with intense personal engagement."
Here his TEDx talk that illustrate this brilliantly. I do urge all of you to take the time to listen, i promise, it is worth it
Research Based Learning Model. "a blue print for a planetary boot-up"
I have completed:
I do believe that there is a need to shift our focus from an information diffusion role -which our schools are performing now- into a learning paradigm were schools are the center of a community, that use them as centers for innovation and products development where local businesses, hackers and makers are an integral part.
I am also, fully aware of the HUGE task that this radical change in the way we learn and teach will bring. But the challenges that any nation will be facing in the future- if they did NOT manage a successful transition into this new way of learning and making things- are going to be even greater.
The industrial revolution dusk is upon us, and a new era in the way we learn, create, make and consume is already here! digital manufacturing and (3D-printing) in particular is not only changing how we make things, it is also changing how we will consume and the fablabs model of learning will allow us to put this new revolution! in the center of our educational systems. Schools need to be the center of communities that use them as centers for innovation and products development, curricula need to be used to solve local real world problems that the communities are facing and local businesses, hackers and makers need to be an integral part of the system.
The first step in achieving this objective is to transform our Schools into meeting places for local communities businesses, inventors, designers, artists, and entrepreneurs where curricular/classroom activities are used to explore ideas, solve problems or develop products. We MUST transform our classrooms into fabrication and innovation labs, run as for-profit community workshops, where new products and creative work can be designed and made using digital fabrication equipment, 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machine, wet-lab, prob-ware and scientific modeling and simulation software.
Fortunately shifting such understandings needn't require reorganizing the entire Schools curriculum. Simple shifts in how content and activities are approached can make a big difference in overcoming student misconceptions and building more accurate views of the process of science. The following strategies can be put in place with minimum investment and cost to achieve this objective:
Teaching sciences at schools is the key to the development and prosperity for any nation. The greatest challenge is to find a tool that will facilitate an organic integration of the content and the sciences we want to teach with a sound teaching pedagogy that is itself scientific?!. 3Dprinting is undoubtedly the tool and platform that will allow us to teach STEM at school. My daughter who is at grade 2 primary School is here to prove it. Watch. She learned to do this after 10 minutes of me explaining to her the basic of 3dprinting and CAD concepts.!!? This generation is ready to take over, are we going help them or are we going to undermine their genus? Again.!
Our aim is to develop STEM based content for the Australian Curriculum of all grades, the emphasis is to develop content that is based on science, and trough scientific simulation, digital media illustration and hands on activities make learning science accessible and fun. We will not focus too much on the curriculum specific contexts. So our content can be used within any specific curriculum requirements.
