The event will start with a short presentation on the Foundation and the plans for a Fab Lab in Troon. A mobile Fab Lab from the Netherlands will be at the event so that all guests can view the facilities and gauge the benefits this can provide to the local community.

Children are very welcome and there will be plenty of activities (bouncy castle, face painting, science games) to keep them occupied.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a fun and educational evening.

What is a Fab Lab?

A Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop anyone can use to design and make pretty much anything.

About the Maidsafe Foundation
