North America's first "Super Lab."
Every maker in the community can create just about anything in our newly expanded Fab Lab.
This 5,000 square foot Fab Lab puts the latest tools and machines for making in the hands of our creative community. We have everything you need to conceptualize, design, develop, fabricate and test any idea you have. The best part is that the equipment is surprisingly easy to use.
LCCC’s Fab Lab is also just the second Fab Lab in the world designated as a “Super Lab” by The Fab Foundation, a non-profit based out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Bits and Atoms.

Get to know your Fab Lab
The Fab Lab, based on the concepts of Dr. Neil Gershenfeld, the director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Bits and Atoms, was the second Fab Lab in the world to open outside of MIT. Since 2007, the lab has been inspiring and educating the making community. Read more about the beginning.
