CNN.com - Fab Labs unshackle kids' imaginations - Nov 8, 2005
CNN carries a story about the Fab Labs MIT is setting up around the world, and the story of the innovation of one girl in Boston. A Fab Lab has also been set up in Takoradi, in Ghana, and wired news has previously carried a story about this. This is an interesting venture in design, and according to fablab staff, kids are picking up computing and design skills fairly quickly. Is this perhaps a way to encourage indigenous innovation and solutions to some of Ghana's challenges? One of the projects being worked on looks at harnessing solar power for cooking etc.
