A model FabLab@School was built at Stanford University on January 2009. This is a 3D rendering of the lab.
The first FabLab@School in a high-school started construction in late 2009 and was officially opened on June 2011. The lab is located at the 1502 MPEI high-school in Moscow, Russia, and was generously funded by Euan Baird, former CEO of the Schlumberger Corporation, and implemented in partnership with Schlumberger's educational foundation, SEED. Since the opening, students at the lab have won several international prizes in science and engineering.

The third FabLab@School came about with a 2-year agreement for lab implemenation, professional development, and research with the Castilleja School, an all-girls school in Palo Alto. We opened the lab on March 2012 and have held several teacher preparation programs. The girls' work was featured on the Thinguiverse/Makerbot website, and also on the Mercury News.

We are currently working with the team of the DSIL school in Thailand, and the University of Chiang Mai (Learning Innovation Lab) to create a FabLab@School in one of the most innovative constructivist schools in the world. The lab should open in late 2012.

The students from the East Palo Alto Academy were the first ones to be exposed to digital fabrication at Stanford, since early 2009. Now we are working with the EPAA team and private donors to open a lab. The Castilleja School is supporting the project as well.
