FabLab Innovation was created using the idealogy developed by MIT and is a part of LILLEBAELT ACADEMY (www.eal.dk) . The FabLab concept has spread worldwide, each one being independently operated. FabLab is to provide a small workshop, accessible to students and entrepreneurs alike for personal and local projects where the product is extremely tailored. It allows for tangible prototyping of ideas and gives individuals access to industrial machinery.
FabLab Innovation was present at Innoevent 2016, http://innoevent.dk/, an event that challenges students to work together to create prototypes to solve various healthcare challenges faced by the local hospital. The event, involving more than 500 students, gave FabLab Innovation the opportunity to present littleBits to a wide range of students from different disciplines. The workshop was conducted in a presentation format, giving a basic introduction to the littleBits and a few simple project ideas that students could use as inspiration for their prototypes. The interested groups were then individually supported, helping to develop their prototypes with littleBits.

Digital concept is about development. You learn to develop digital concepts across media and platforms from app-design to physical products with digital functions, and you learn to develop business models that fit. We create a workshop together with Little Bits in order to understand relations between electronics and digital concepts learn in the class rooms.
*the event is reserve for LILLEBAELT ACADEMY, DIGITAL CONCEPT BA TOP-UP students.

Integrating LittleBits in this concept it will be awesome.
The project is called Building Interfaces for Social Inclusion (BISI) and it is the sixth time we make such a project. The advantage of having a collaboration of long time is that all parties know each other and know what they can expect from each other.
The municipal institutions are very different - and there will be many different welfare technological tasks. Develop projects to Vollsmoseindsatsen culture, Vollsmoseindsatsen Vivo, Seden house's residents with Down Syndrome, Seden Huse, Solutions for Wayfinding for people with Alzheimer's, Alzheimer info to relatives, Red Cross App, Red Cross Recycling Business and Bofællesskabet Æblegrenen.
In collaboration with a pedagogy class from the University College Lillebælt the students work together on different programs into groups making use of LittleBits electronics to prototype .
On Friday, May 20, the students present their projects to a jury of businesses and teachers who will select a winner.
