Last week, I got a chance to visit the Bourn Idea Lab, a FabLab@School at Castilleja School in Palo Alto. I spent one and a half hours observing interactions in a maker class for my study about learning environment and interaction in maker lab. I'd like to share my learning experience in this post about how impressed I was by the wonderful learning environment in the school's maker lab. Thank you Angi Chau and Heather Pang for supporting my visit.

Since I moved my first steps on the maker scene I was interested about what people think about fabLAB/maker space format and how they define it. During FAB5: The Fifth International Fab Lab Forum and Symposium on Digital Fabrication in Pune, India in 2009 I made a mini doc asking people  to define a fabLAB in 3 words. Here the video.
