WORKSHOPS in our FabLab

Workshops for companies

More courage to implement, more courage to take risks, more courage to collaborate - that is what it takes to be successful as an entrepreneur and to implement complex projects. Tailor-made workshops for companies convey systemic approaches and support the learning of these qualities through practical experience, through teamwork and the sense of failure and success.

Interested companies contact Dr. Christian Teissl by email to discuss the possibility of individually designed workshops.

Workshops for makers

From 2D and 3D construction to the manufacture of furniture - our range of courses and workshops in the FabLab is diverse. Since the imparting and passing on of knowledge is an essential part of a FabLab for us, the courses and workshops are freely accessible. Current dates can be found in the programme.

Workshops for schoolchildren

To inspire students aged 10-18 years for research and innovation is the goal of our “Digital Fit” workshops, which we are organizing in the FabLab on the initiative of the Verein klasse!forschung. From the construction of a solar-powered weather station to light-controlled mini-robots to a rapid prototyping workshop, the pupils experiment, led by experienced researchers, in small groups with original equipment in a real research environment.

Information & registration for the school workshops via the Verein klasse!forschung. Interested universities contact by email to discuss the possibility of workshops for students.

Workshops for students

There is a lot of experience with a new teaching format for universities and technical colleges, which are called “Rapid Product Development”. This is an innovative, highly practice-oriented “hands-on” combination of lecture and exercise. Students experience first hand the circular innovation process - from the first sketch to the prototype, the value of “early failure” and “asking the right questions”, as well as achieving success through an iterative learning process. The individual prototypes are made by the students themselves using the latest digital manufacturing methods and the support of the FabLab team - authentically embedded in the inspiring start-up environment of Werkstätte Wattens. Since the content and the task can be adapted to the students’ prior knowledge, this format is also perfect as a valuable addition to business lectures, especially in the fields of product development or innovation management.
