Open call Lesson


Fabstory is a digital fabrication lesson and kit for storytelling in the classroom.



This kit enables K-12 classes for participants to create and engage in the art of storytelling, by creating, sharing and remixing each other’s stories, and building a 3D representation of it. Can be used in multiple classes, like history and biology, giving kids a voice on their perspective of the subject.


The project is designed to be produced locally using simple recyclable materials such as MDF, cardboard or even paper.
