It involves five components that couple the Fab Lab to Davis A&M High School students and to Naval Reservists at the Naval Operational Support Center in Akron, Ohio. The components include:

  • Curriculum Development and Capstone Design Incorporating Fab Lab Learning Outcomes
  • Fab Faculty Teacher Professional Development Institutes
  • Naval student engagement programs including SeaCadets
  • On-the-job Fab Lab training opportunities for Naval Reservists
  • Naval Reservist mentoring partnership with the Davis A&M High School students
