Our transition year trip to the WeCreate Fab Lab was an exceptional educational experience for the students which they really enjoyed and learned many technical skills. The students got the chance to actively engage in various activities such as Laser cutting, 3-D printing, CAD and Electronics. The experienced staff at WeCreate made the day fun and I enjoyed working with them.   The trip was a Step into the future!”
