Odyssey Educational Foundation is operating a (fab lab) fabrication laboratory in Abuja. it’s the first of its kind here and we are pleased to inform the general public that the procurement of this fab lab equipment’s was courtesy of the Australian Aid in Nigeria.
Fabrication laboratory is an integral component of digital fabrication and modeling. Digital modeling and fabrication is a design and production process that combines 3D modeling or computing aided design (CAD) with additive and subtractive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing is also known as a 3D printing, while subtractive manufacturing may also be referred to as machining and many other technologies can be exploited to physically produce the designed objects. Our digitally fabricated objects are created using 3D modeling. Our fab lab is equipped with machines such as a 3D printer, Cutting plotter, Heat press, and Laser Cutter.
We are training children (STEM trainees) on digital fabrications of various types, and the handling, operation, and maintenance of these machines. Odyssey Educational Foundation has always been at the forefront of promoting STEM Education in Abuja and Nigeria as a whole in our outreach programs in many states.
Our facilitator teaching the students the practical and theoretical aspect of the functions of the machines.
