The Wanger Family Fab-Lab at MadaTech consists of 27 3D printers, 30 digital design stations, laser cutters, digital milling stations, and more. It is a part of MadaTech’s Innovation Center, which aims to expose MadaTech’s visitors to innovative ideas, technologies and practices.
During 2015, Fab Lab introduced the world of laser cutting and 3D printing to more than 3000 visitors. The participants are of almost all ages: five year olds to pensioners. Fab Lab’s activities are varied and each participant gains knowledge matching their age and abilities.
The establishment of Fab-Lab at MadaTech was made possible through the generous donation of the Wanger Family from Chicago, USA. At Fab-Lab’s official launch event in December, 2014, Ralph Wanger declared that…: “up until today, Chicago’s Fab-Lab was the biggest in the world. Today, it is second to the one built at MadaTech, Haifa, which is the biggest and best of them all. I am excited to see our dream of such a leading Fab-Lab, turned into a reality.”
