What is a Fab Lab? In the simplest of terms, a Fab Lab is a place where technology empowers users with the ability to create almost anything they can imagine!

But what does that actually mean? How does that translate into day-to-day life? Well, for instance, a Fab Lab is the perfect place for:

  • Anyone, of any age, who has ever wanted to create a totally new and different object or device.
  • Individuals who have thought of a better way to repair or update a broken or obsolete machine, tool, device or toy.
  • Those innovative thinkers – young or old – who have developed a plan to modify an existing object or device to make it look or perform far better than it ever has.

The Fab Lab Permian Basin at Odessa College is a partnership between the Fab Foundation, Chevron Corporation, and Odessa College. There will actually be two Fab Lab Permian Basin at Odessa College facilities: a larger, stationary, main Fab Lab on the campus of Odessa College, and a smaller, mobile Fab lab that will travel throughout the Permian Basin, visiting schools, businesses, organizations and communities all across the region. All students in the Permian Basin region are invited to participate in the Mobile Fab Lab Permian Basin at Odessa College Wrap Design Contest, in the hope that their imaginations will be stimulated and their curiosities piqued to learn more about the amazing world of digital design and fabrication.
