FryskLab is a mobile FabLab, developed by Bibliotheekservice Fryslân. It is the first officially library-powered FabLab in Europe. FryskLab creates an healthy interest in technology and maker skills, hereby stimulating digital literacy. Users of the lab will be able to use tools and skills to design and remix their personal environment and share these with others.
With FryskLab being mobile it brings resources, possibilities and new ways to work to locations which need it the most (schools, small villages, companies etc.) With FryskLab we especially focus on a strong collaboration with education. We intend to (re)vitalize children’s enthousiasm for technology, but more importantly the 21st century skills that are mandatory for being empowered in the (near) future: entrepeneurship, information sharing, collaboration, problem solving and creativity.
