The FabLab project, implemented by Terre des hommes Romania Foundation, continues the activity started in 2020, being funded by the Orange Foundation in the period January 2022 - February 2023. The workspace is organised in  Târgu Ocna Technological Highschool and it is provided with digital equipment, so that the youth become familiar with 3D modeling and 3D printing technology.  The space was set up to welcome both students from the high school, young people from the Detention Centre for young people, as well as children and young people from middle schools, NEETS or others from surrounding communities.

Through this project, Terre des hommes Foundation and Orange Foundation are giving an opportunity to young people from Bacau county to develop their creativity, to explore and learn, to build life and entrepreneurial skills and to gain access to a support community of peers, local organizations, private companies and entrepreneurs.
