Stoughton High School students can make nearly anything with high-tech Fab Lab
Students at Stoughton High School already can take classes that teach them how to weld, fix a car, remodel a home, create an architectural blueprint or produce a video.
Starting this fall, they’ll have a new option: learning how to make ... almost anything, thanks to the school’s new Fab Lab.
And next year, the rest of Stoughton’s residents and entrepreneurs will have access to the hands-on classroom.
The Fab Lab (short for fabrication laboratory) is a concept pioneered by Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Neil Gershenfeld, director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms.

Theme Days – Project Based Collaborative Learning Enhanced through ICTs.
The concept of a Theme Day involves a cross curricular approach to project based blended learning pedagogy. A key element is that it makes provision for a range of additional opportunities for a group of learners to become engaged in the process of developing the activities and resources for the rest of their colleagues in the Grade.
