Tarrant Count College will host FAB Now 2016, an educational conference and expo about makers and the maker movement, Feb. 19-21 on the Trinity River Campus in downtown Fort Worth.
The event is designed for teachers, craftspeople and small business developers to hear about and experience demos and hands-on activities that bring together 3D printing, computer numerically controlled production resources, art and design for creative expression and community-oriented problem solving.
“Exciting the imagination of inventors, designers, artists and students, and providing them with tools and fabrication resources and methods they may not routinely have access to is central to the maker movement and the culture of makerspaces,” said Len Avecilla, a lead organizer of FAB Now and the Texas MAKERS Guild initiative.
The conference will feature presenters from throughout the region as well as live streamed presentations from around the country.
On Feb. 20, student makers from K-12 through college will showcase their designs.
