Adfab:ED helps young people through education programs using interest-directed problem solving with digital fabrication technology.
The Alliance for Digital Fabrication Education is an 501c3 organization whose mission is to create equal access to meaningful learning opportunities for under-served youth and promote development of critical thinking and design entrepreneurship with the use of digital fabrication tools.
We promote the curriculum of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math though direct problem solving with advanced tools and equipment. We believe in the enhancement of our technological progress and economic prosperity through early exposure to digital fabrication technology, and see a future world being balanced by the democratization of digital manufacturing innovations.
- Project-based and student-centered learning
- Exposure to mentors and industry professionals
- Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing track programs
- Promoting entrepreneurship and citizenship
- Developing communities of innovation

LEGO Engineering is developed by the Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO), with the support of LEGO Education and innovative teachers from around the globe, including the Engineering Design Group Educators (EDGE).
The mission of LEGO Engineering is to inspire and support teachers in bringing LEGO-based engineering to all students.
The focus of this site is on educators who are ready to go beyond the basics with LEGO-based engineering.
STEMcentric is a resource for those involved with STEM education, either as a student or instructor. It is the home for the LEGO Robotics tutorials for the Mindstorms EV3, NXT and even the RCX. Here you’ll also find a vast array of STEM-related resources, many inherited from the now departed Oregon Pre-engineering and Applied Sciences (OPAS) effort led by Jo Oshiro. STEMcentric is lovingly maintained by FRC Team 1540, the Flaming Chickens.

Children’s Innovation Project embraces innovation as finding something new inside something known. This frame for innovation allows a slow space for children to find small, authentic discoveries and reflect on themselves in relation to the materials they explore. An approach of technology as raw material further supports children’s innovation as it nudges children to work deeply at the grain of technology as they explore with Circuit Blocks, electronic toys, other devices and components. We don’t attach value to technology itself, and we approach technology as a means to learning, not an end. Through a focus on the language-logic systems of technology, children gain access to the thinking of technology, instead of just using the stuff of technology. This access to thinking is supported by teachers who, inside this approach to innovation and technology, also have an opportunity to slow down so they may notice closely processes of children’s thinking. As children explore with a focus on process, not product, children have time to practice habits of mind to notice, wonder and persist and thus begin to embody these habits as internalized sensibilities for their own learning. Children’s Innovation Project supports learning that is interdisciplinary, driven by creative inquiry and aware of the importance of context. Our primary motivation is learning about learning— student learning, teacher learning and community learning. In this way, we seek to shift current educational conversations about making and innovation so educators and policy makers might focus more on supporting processes of thinking and less on technology products.
