Fab Labs were born from an outreach project by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in inner-city Boston in 2005. Parents are encouraged to get involved in the making or  children can stage an after school race. Workshops explore scientific principles, the history of aviation and inspire children to think of about themselves as an aerospace engineer of the  future. Meanwhile, I cut fins from a cardboard box and we attached them to the tubes using our hot glue gun (which then proceeded to explode…).
I then inserted the circular, tubed part of the flames inside the bottom of the rocket and secured it with hot glue. A simple, rhyming book that tells all about rockets, their adventures in space and their return to earth.

Even if the story is apocryphal, his principle isn't: If an object weighs less than the water it displaces, it won't sink. Materials scientist Joseph-Louis Lambot built a concrete dinghy featured in the 1855 World's Fair. The Madison-based team and one from the University of California, Berkeley, helped devise this mini-boat project for Popular Science. Then round off one side of the foam by shaving away about ? of an inch at a time from the edges.
Next, smear polyurethane glue on the sculpted foam's flat side and put it facedown on the plywood. Cement is an irritant, hot plastic can scald skin, and utility knives are sharp—be careful! While in space, he has quite an adventure, but then returns safely to earth and his mother’s outstretched arms. As they like rockets, your boys will probably like this text – let us know what you think.


Now there are over 200 Fab Labs from the inner cities of the USA to the villages of Africa.
All that's required is a trip to a home-supply store and a safe place to set sail—just in case your craftsmanship stinks, er, sinks.
Slowly pour the concrete over the mold, stopping when you reach your desired thickness (?-inch max). They modify their boat to make it sail faster and straighter and eventually they realise that joining two boats together will improve speed, stability and how much cargo they can carry.
Children explore ways of navigation, past and present and imagine sailing to places that have not been discovered yet. A team from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, for example, used concrete mixed with tiny air-filled glass spheres to build a 20-foot-long vessel that supports a four-member crew. We got our tube at Kmart, but you can get them at office supply stores and post offices as well.
