Fab Lab was included in the Seven Days to Live section of the Colorado Springs Independent. Check out the awesome write up by clicking here and then become suddenly compelled to attend Fab Lab. I love this bit here, “There’ll be banging. Maybe some welding. Dust and sparks will fly! Things will be re-purposed for the good of all mankind, and occasionally people will high-five afterward. It’ll be … fabulous.” -Matthew Schniper
