CO-FAB Workshop

Where imagination sparks innovation!
CO-FAB, which stands for collaboration and fabrication, is a five-week workshop hosted by Form5. CO-FAB provides an opportunity for those with limb differences to work with designers, engineers, and medical professionals to turn their imagination into innovation! Form5's newly developed STEM curriculum for CO-FAB provides ALL participants with an experiential learning opportunity. Over five weekends (Saturdays), recipients co-create a custom-application device with their project teams.

Form5 is proud to announce that two CO-FAB Workshops are planned for the 2023-24 academic year. The Autumn Workshop will take place over 5 Weekends (from 9/16 - 10/14). Applications for the Fall Workshop will open on May 26th, 2023.

How It Works:

Form5 selects 3 individuals with limb differences per workshop to 'co-fab' their own custom-application devices.

The application process begins with meeting the recipient where they are today and understanding their specific needs to help them embrace their future.
