Greetings to all we. As the brighter youth of fablab we kindly respond to you about what we learned and also the experiences that have experienced from fablab. we have learned a lot especially about graphic design graphic design-is all aqbout exploring yourself we have learned about the press fit,meterials that we need to use and the instructions for open office draw
what have we experience – to do things in our own and that was the amazing part because in future we get to do things in our own;fab lab showed us that nothing is impossible if you just use your imaginatoin you can turn a small thing into a big thing no one is poor unless you want to be same how same where they showed us directoin in life and they feel for nthose who feel for them selfs
Education is the key to success

AFTER A LONG AND CHALLENGING DAY AS A GROUP WE WERE SUPPOSE TO DESIGN A TIDY STATIONARY HOLDER WHICH WAS A BIT DIFFICULT BUT ENJOIBLE AS WELL.IT WAS VERY HARD WHEN WE WERE SUPPOSE TO DRAW ON COMPUTERS BUT WE MANAGED TO GET IT DONE.WE DID A VERY SMALL BUT UNIQUE PROJECT .
WE DESIGNED A BRIEF FOR OUR DESIGN THEN WE DREW OUR PROJECT ON A SKETCH BOOK AND EVERY ONE IN OUR GROUP CAME UP WITH THEIR OWN DESIGN AND WE CHOSE THE ONE THAT WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THE BEST AND WE CUT IT AND DONE

IT WAS SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH MY GROUP DOING A “DESK TIDY”.MY GROUP MEMBERS CAME WITH INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND WE SHARED THOSE IDEAS WITH EACH OTHER MY GROUP A YOUTH FULL OF NEW OPPORTUNITIES FULL OF SMART YOUNG MINDS.WE FACED A STRONG CHALLENGE ESPECIALLY GROUP DESIGN ENGINEER,SHE HAD TO DRAW THE SKETCH OF OUR IDEAS COMBINED TOGETHER.AS A WHOLE GROUP WE HAD OUR ARGUMENTS THERE AND THEN BUT WE MANAGED TO GET OVER THEM BECAUSE WE BELIEVE WORKING TOGETHER AS A TEAM WE CAN ARCHIEVE MORE THAN WE CAN.WHEN IT CAME TO FORMALIZING THROUGH ISOMETRIC DRAWING IT WAS VERY CHALLENGING BUT ANYWAY WE WERE EXREMELY EXCITED WITH THE RESULT WE GOT AND WE HOPE OUR TEACHERS WERE ALSO HAPPY ABOUT OUR FINAL PRODUCT.
