FabLab München e.V. is one of the first FabLabs in Germany (founded 2010). First of all FabLab München is an open workspace for personal manufacturing with machines like 3D printer, lasercutter, CNC milling machines, vinylcutter and elektronics. All members get access 24/7.
On the other hand FabLab Kids as a subsection of FabLab München offers pupils of all age the opportunity to get in touch with new technology and new ways of teaching. Classes can visit FabLab or FabLab teachers go into school to work on projects with the kids there (3D modelling and printing, coding, soldering, lasercutting). FabLab München therefore cooperates with many schools and institutions in the Munich area. We are very happy to take part in the Erasmus+ project to implement making activities into regular lessons in secondary schools very soon.

El Clot is a high school in Valencia, born in 1984.
As a public secondary school, one of our main objectives is to provide students with intellectual, critical and competency tools so that they can function in daily life and, if necessary, so that through learning they can compensate for the social or economic difficulties that some students may have.
The students participate also in Experimenta competitions, aimed at designing physical applications and in several projects and competitions related to the use of networks, new technologies and creativity.
At the Gymnasium Neubiberg, a secondary school in Neubiberg founded in 1976, pedagogic concepts are supported to discover and encourage the potential of our students and infuse them with the joy of learning. Using new media and tools like 3D-printing, programming and virtual reality applications, we want to prepare our students for future technologies and their future careers. Hence, interdisciplinary trainings for our teachers are held in order to give them useful inputs for their courses.
