Key Challenges in Digital Fabrication for 21st Century Education

Monday 16 June 2014, Aarhus University, Denmark

FabLearn Europe brings together international researchers, educators, designers, and makers to discuss and explore digital fabrication in education, making, and hands-on learning for the 21st Century. This first European FabLearn conference is organized jointly by Stanford University, Bremen University and Aarhus University.

FabLearn Europe is a spinoff of the global FabLearn conference, and builds on the strong and dedicated community that has developed around the event for the past three years at Stanford University. The one-day event is organized by the Research Centre for Participatory IT in close conjunction with the IDC’14 Conference on Interaction Design and Children, which is held at Aarhus University and the LEGO Foundation, 17-20 June, 2014.
