Fabrication Labs have been springing up at area K-12 schools after Three Lakes schools had the first one in the state in 2014.

Now Rhinelander is opening it's Fab Lab for public open house on October 21. Senior High Principal David Ditzler says the lab is a state of the art teacher...

"....it was a grant-developed classroom facility that allows students to create, design and fabricate things using some very new technologies..."

He says part of their grant was to open the facilities to the public and they feel they can do that now. He says the response has been very positive...

"....from a student standpoint, the students are very excited in learning the different equipment. We have 3-D printers, milling machines, vinyl cutters and laser engravers and 3-D scanning devices. The students have been really excited making use of these different tools...."

The open house is set for Saturday, October 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Fab Lab will be open to the community beginning Monday, October 16 and will be open every Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5:00-7:00 p.m. for community access.
