Peralta News: ‘FabLab’ Grand Opening

Building a partnership with Laney College, the Sustainable Urban Design Academy (SUDA) at Castlemont High School in East Oakland celebrated the Grand Opening of the ‘FabLab’ (Fabrication Laboratory), the first of its kind at an Oakland High School.

This new program bridges the hands-on appeal of shop class, being creative and using tools, with in-depth exposure to technology, including open-source file libraries, 3-D and 2-D design software, and hardware interfaces. Castlemont and Laney are also hoping to develop faculty bridges which will cultivate industry involvement in Laney’s curriculum and Laney faculty involvement at Castlemont in order to strengthen the career pathway.
