Fort Worth, Texas (Feb. 15, 2017)



Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus is collaborating with The Texas MAKERS Guild to host FAB Now 2017, a three-day  educational meetup and expo for anyone who wants to know more about the Maker Movement or would like to demonstrate their maker skills. A national trend, the maker movement is considered “the platform” on which today’s artisans create, craft and develop leading ideas and products.


FAB Now 2017 is expected to attract educators, engineers, scientists, artists, entrepreneurs and families. Now in its third year, FAB offers demos and hands-on activities that bring together 3D printing, computer numerically controlled production resources, art and design for creative expression and community-oriented problem solving, according to event organizers.


The three-day conference features presenters from throughout the region, as well as live-streamed presentations from across the nation. FAB Now 2017 is free and open to the public.
