FabLab Itinerante, the mobile digital fabrication laboratory that will tour Castilla-La Mancha until June 5
May 10, 2021

The first mobile digital fabrication laboratory started its trip in Cuenca on May 6 and will take technological innovation to all the provinces of Castilla-La Mancha throughout five weeks. This pilot project is being implemented by FabLab Cuenca thanks to the financial support of the U.S. Embassy and the provincial council of Cuenca and to a vehicle donated by Cuenca Red Cross that has been adapted and equipped with all the necessary technology to provide digital fabrication workshops. From May 8, FabLab Itinerante will be visiting Tarancón, Cuenca; El Toboso, Toledo; Villarrobledo, Albacete; Alcázar de San Juan, Ciudad Real; and Sigüenza, Guadalajara. The presentation took place at the headquarters of the provincial council in Cuenca and was hosted by its president Álvaro Martínez Chana, with the participation of acting counselor for public diplomacy Adam Lenert on behalf of the Embassy, together with FabLab director Delia Millán and the president of Cuenca Red Cross Pedro Roca. In his speech, Lenert highlighted the importance of collaboration with local institutions to reach new audiences with which to share U.S. society values and good practices such as the philosophy of “learning by doing,” while contributing to the decrease of the digital gap.
