    People love to make things. Teaching students how to make things out metal and wood and ceramic materials have long been a part of school curricula. Digital technologies have created new ways of making things and Sitka High School has been in the forefront of bringing these new manufacturing technologies to the State of Alaska. We call it Design and Fabrication. It happens in a place we call the Fab Lab. This short video by Alex Cook describes what sorts of things happen in the Fab Lab and why we believe it is a good thing for our students.
