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.
