|Where is it located?||
It is located in Pulchowk, Nepal.
Field Ready is a humanitarian organization with a strategic objective to build the capacity of local organizations to be able to respond to humanitarian crises by making relief items locally using digital fabrication and more traditional manufacturing processes which would result in localized responses that would then be faster, better and cheaper than that of foresay import of relief items. In partnership with Field Ready and Impact Hub Kathmandu, Fablab Nepal was launched at the Hub in February 2020 in collaboration with FieldReady. It is a collaborative center for innovation, invention, education and humanitarian outreach and a fully equipped digital fabrication workshop. It provides access to knowledge, tools, and resources that bring ideas from heads to hands and champions ‘making’ as a means of empowering the people of Nepal regardless of their gender, social status, ability or economic means
Fab Lab Nepal
|About the project||
Fab Lab Nepal is a collaborative centre for innovation, invention, education and humanitarian outreach. As stated, we run projects that create and provide an environment for individuals to work on their ideas freely. Many remarkable projects are running out of the lab, focusing on graduate student entrepreneurs and community government schools around STEAM projects.
This project made us realize the importance of creating an environment to learn by doing and how being open to making mistakes can help us know more. The participants were grouped, and each group worked on different product ideas in which they also learnt about teamwork.
