Fab Lab

We are Cook Inlet Tribal Council’s Fabrication Lab. We are based out of Anchorage Alaska serving Alaska Native and American Indian students based in the Anchorage school district. We teach design, building, and fabrication with a cultural emphasis. Our different grants serve different age ranges of students, helping to promote their full science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics potential. Through creative exploration and experimentation processes, our students are discovering the skills they’ll need as Alaska’s next generation of engineers, designers, artists and innovators. With the help from our Fab Lab Instructors, students have been using the Fab Lab to build traditional model kayaks, light up drums, light up dance fans and so much more. Our unique teams comes from very diverse backgrounds, helping stitch all of the components necessary to make this a great place to learn, grow, and fabricate!
