Fabrication (Fab) Lab:

In consultation with 3D design professionals in Boston we have initiated this program to train and engage young students pursue the 3D and robotics field. The center will use the development of prosthetic legs as a model to train students and staff. Through this effort we will be able to improve mobility of individuals who are physically challenged and enhance their ability to live more rewarding and productive lives.  The Fab lab will create an enabling environment for staff, students and professionals to work together to create engineering solutions (such as the figure on the right) to improve physical function and well-being.

Project Manager
SIT Fab Lab

Jordan originally started building 3D models when he was about 13 years old. His first projects were centered around video games and 3D printing. He originally went to school for New Media Design, where he learned a lot about digital content creation, motion graphics and web design. He transferred into Industrial Design because he wanted to learn how to build physical objects.
In his professional career he has had the privilege of working in all areas where CAD is used, including automotoive, aerospace, product design, architectural visualization and real time game engines.
He is extremely passionate about education and wants to establish 3D Design as a discipline – similar to what drafting used to be.
He was born on St. Croix in the USVI and currently reside in Massachusetts, USA.
