FabNewport: Much More than a Maker Space


Kevin first came to FabNewport three years ago as part of an after school program run in conjunction with the Thompson Middle School and the Community School. He developed his coding, sewing, design and machine skills. Last year Kevin attended all of our after school and summer programs for a total of 448 hours. In addition to developing technical and essential skills, Kevin has learned how to bike and sail. His younger brother Alex is now part of the Newport Experience.

No one in Kevin’s family had any sailing experience. While FabNewport is a maker space, we are much more than that. Our comprehensive vision inspires students to view the entire community as a learning opportunity. We also emphasize building relationships which are at the core of a well lived life.
