Great Hearts Initiatives | FabNewport

Mission

FabNewport uses technology as a platform for empowerment. Students are encouraged to discover their passions through play. Play means having time to fiddle, tinker and experiment with materials in encouraging environment supported by a coach. Once passions are cultivated students naturally find their purpose as a means to connect with the larger world.

We believe learning takes time, and we build a reflective practice in our students by emphasizing personal qualities such as grit, creativity, and empathy.

We believe students of all ages are capable of learning how to use technology materials to create. We believe in collaboration across sectors ages and economic spectrums. The path to a better future requires innovation and equal opportunity.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"FabNewport provides a space with an array of mechanisms to facilitate learning a new trade or expounding upon an existing skill set. Children can learn skills that will better equip them for future job markets, skills not offered in most contemporary curriculum. I encourage my friends and acquaintances to visit the lab workspace to discover a new car..." - Peter Converse
