Where Innovation Comes Alive!
A global initiative, Fab Labs bring table-top manufacturing and fabrication technology to the masses, making it possible for almost anyone with a great idea to turn that idea into a physical reality. These resources have been established throughout the world and now we have one in Bethlehem at NCC's Fowler Family Southside Center.
Thanks to the vision and generosity of local entrepreneur, Shahri Naghshineh, the college opened its original Fab Lab in 2007 with a laser cutter-etcher networked with six computers. An EDA Performance Award has expanded the lab to include a rapid prototyper 3D printer, a CNC router, two programmable sewing machines, a well-equipped wood shop, ten computers with a variety of two dimensional and three-dimensional design software and a variety of other tools and machines.
