Founded in August 2016, Fablab Cantho is the first Fablab in Mekong Delta officially recognized by The Fab Foundation. It aims at one goal: connecting talents to create an open platform for innovation.
The main activities of Fablab Cantho consist of four pillars:
- Learn: Give do-it-yourself (DIY) and step-by-step tutorials on STEM topics selected by fabmasters
- Make: Provide equipements for learners/makers to make their prototypes/products
- Share: Promote existing prototypes/products with guidance to makers community and potential clients/investors
- Sell: Sell valuable products to final users/clients
Existing products made by fabmasters vary from fine art & handmade accessories to robotics & smart devices.
One of the most important assets of "Made in Fablabs" products is DIY spirit - you buy products, you have products + guidance how to make them.
