The Creative Design Lab and Robomania Lab at the National Science Centre are initiatives of the Innovation Department of NIHERST and together they form our Fab Lab facilities. They aim to provide the community with affordable access to tools and resources for education, creativity, innovation, and professional development. NIHERST’s Fab Lab is the first of its kind registered in Trinidad and Tobago, and in the region, by the Fab Foundation which emerged from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Bits & Atoms Fab Lab Program. Our labs focus on design, hands-on projects, prototyping and robotics. We are committed to providing a relaxed environment where users can share ideas, work on their projects, take classes, attend workshops or just tinker.
We offer a variety of workshops, clubs, camps and other outreach activities for various age groups. The lab is also available for your own personal projects every Wednesday (be sure to book your machines)!
