Fabricate: LU

You are here

  • Fabricate LU students working on project

Do you enjoy working with your hands? Or, have you never held a screwdriver before, but want to learn how to get started making things? Come explore many of Lehigh’s fabrication facilities and learn how to leverage these tools to support your educational and personal growth. Be empowered to create something functional from raw materials, and leave with a one-of-a-kind keepsake to mark the start of your Lehigh journey.

Participants will engage with a variety of on-campus resources, ranging from a traditional cabinetry-grade woodshop to CNC machining to various 3D printing technologies (and the staff who run them!). These resources are available to all Lehigh students, yet require training to use. Get a leg up on your fellow classmates by exploring Lehigh’s state-of-the-art facilities.

As part of this intensive, exciting foray into making, students will:

  • Explore traditional methods of work, such as bending sheet metal to give it form and cutting wood precisely to shape
  • Learn to harness the powers of programming and electronics with an arduino microcontroller
  • Get exposed to the exciting emerging technology of 3D printing by designing and printing components of your project
  • Explore the local area learning the history of an old manufacturing city and enjoying local food
  • Experience the thrill of taking disparate components made with a wide variety of skills, and combining them into a final, functional, personalized work of art No special skills, abilities or experience is necessary! Join us and we’ll teach you.
