DigiFabCon: 9th Annual Digital Fabrication Conference

April 4 - 6, 2019 | Carnegie Science Center | Pittsburgh PA

Join an interactive conversation exploring how to use Digital Badges to certify professional development for educators and digital fabrication skills for the New Collar Workforce

DigiFabCon is an interactive, creative, inspiring event exploring how anyone can change the world using the new tools of digital fabrication.  In its 8th year, the 2019 DigiFabCon will focus on Digital Badges, a platform for verifying skills and accomplishments through the North American Digital Fabrication Alliance.

On Thursday, April 4, thought leaders in manufacturing, education, workforce training, entrepreneurship, startups, and many other fields will share how they are innovating training for 3D Printing, laser cutting, CNC machining, artificial intelligence, CAD software, robotics and so much more!

The afternoon will feature two Roundtables for employers, educators and policy makers to brainstorm on the Skills gap and innovative education initiatives to work together on solutions.

Breakouts on Friday, April 5 will split into the EduFab educator professional development track and the Workforce Training for New Collar Jobs track. Mixed in are great opportunities to connect with like-minded colleagues and share creative ideas.

Additional workshops will be available on Saturday April 6 to anyone whether or not they attend the conference.  Go to the 2019 Program page for details!

I can’t wait for Digi Fab Con. It’s been an inspiration every year.
