PRE-FAB Workshop

In 2022 Form5 launched PRE-FAB, a team-based workshop that empowers students to design and construct prosthetic devices for mock recipients, providing a unique intersection of health and science education.
Form5 will host a total of twelve PRE-FAB™ Workshops (after-school and over the summer) in 2024. Beyond traditional hands-on experiences, PRE-FAB sparks social innovation by encouraging students to apply their skills to solving real-world problems. The trajectory and success of PRE-FAB has been amplified through a crucial partnership with Battelle.

The two-week workshop immerses students in disability awareness, person-centered design, iteration, and teamwork. The emphasis on CAD design and 3D printing equips participants with practical knowledge in engineering, a field poised for significant growth.
