FabMaker Studio (Fab@School Maker Studio) is the first digital design and fabrication software developed specifically for the elementary classroom. This easy-to-use, web-based program, developed in conjunction with the Make To Learn initiative led by Glen Bull at the University of Virginia, provides an onramp to digital design and fabrication and a motivating way to support standards across the curriculum.
