Every year the Fab Academy conducts a rigorous semester long class based on the MIT course, with remote participants working in local Fab Labs around the world.
CUCFL hosted a Fab Academy class in 2011.
If there is enough interest, we could try to have one in Jany 2013.
We need to get several (probably 3 or more) people to sign up (Note: there is a $3-5000 tuition.) and we will need to recruit a "guru" to be the local expert here.
