My name is Carlos Mattei and I am the Director of the LEAP Academy Fabrication Laboratory located in Camden, NJ. We are a FabLab that focuses on k-12th STEAM education in the LEAP Academy School District with a strong emphasis in getting our students to pursue STEAM related college majors and careers.Our machinery includes Makerbots and Ultimakers 3D printers, one laser cutter, one CNC router, digital electronics equipment such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards, basic circuitry, VEX robotics and general woodworking tools.

We are starting a new fab lab in El Salvador, Central America since May 2017 and we choose you as a referee, it will be very much appreciated if you can agree our registration to fablabs.io

Fab Lab Escuela Americana is inside a K-12 bilingual school in El Salvador Central America giving access to students and staff.
This center supports high school students looking for the implementation of technological innovation, experimentation and prototyping for those interested in learn and develop in different fields they can use in their future professional life.
We have the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and STEAM (integrates Arts as the fifth area of interest) programs in early grades and the fab lab should complement the process of learning and innovate with open education programs promoting ownership of technology and entrepreneurship for high school students.

Thank you in advance for your attention and don’t hesitate to ask for more information.

Hello my friends there in Fablab Lima,

I just would like to know, had you received any notification from fablabs org about you being one of our referee labs? I would like to ask for update about our approval process for our fablabs to be registered. We actually received one approval already (but we don’t know who was it among the three referees) but waiting for another one for us to be visible in the organization. However, until now, we haven’t heard anymore about our application.

I hope you can help us with this. We really love to hear back from you guys there and exchange ideas about improving fablabs and making almost anything through the technology. Thank you so much and God bless!

Looking forward for your response.

Warm regards,
