The Fab Academy 2019 applications are now open and this year, the global Fab Academy programme is asking students to think about how we can equip ourselves to make our own jobs to not only change our own future but have a positive impact on the future of those around us.

Since 2001, Fab Lab Barcelona at IAAC has been at the cutting edge of the global maker movement enabling innovation and democratising the use of digital fabrication technology as the local node for Fab Academy in Barcelona.

Over this time, we have incubated many innovative projects. Some of the many highlights from the class of 2018 include a smoke signal machine by Javi Albo, a pollution sensor calibration unit by Óscar González Fernández and an interactive installation powered by a capacitance sensor by Dorota Orlof.

As well as successful recent projects, Fab Lab Barcelona has some very impressive alumni, including our current Director, Tomás Díez. Meet other three Fab Academy Barcelona alumni from 2014 and 2015 who have made their job.
