H2I Group, formerly Haldeman Homme, offers total turnkey solutions for your fab lab and makerspace. PhabLabs are a type of fab lab provided by H2I in conjunction with Palmer Hamilton. With a PhabLab by H2I, you can get more than just the machines. All the furniture and equipment you need to create a space for your students is available through H2I Group. We have tables, workbenches, chairs, storage carts, and more.
At its most basic, a makerspace or fab lab is a DIY space with computer controlled and traditional equipment that allows people to create, invent, and learn. Most makerspaces are essentially prototyping labs. When utilized in a school, fab labs allow students to explore new ways to create and engage with technology. Students don’t just formulate ideas in a makerspace—they formulate actual, tangible models. Students can create real-life prototypes every time they step into a makerspace.
H2I also offers curriculum for every fab lab, including PhabLabs. Curriculum for makerspaces is as diverse as the machines that can make up a makerspace. Instructors can choose many different paths, but the outcome is always the same—to have students interact with the creative process in new ways. Students from all disciplines and intended paths can benefit from learning how to utilize technology and bring their ideas to life by building real, physical prototypes. Anything from a clock gear to a prosthetic hand can be made a reality in a makerspace.
H2I will help you design the layout of your fab lab, incorporating all of the machines and furniture into your space, so there’s no guesswork for you. With financing options and support, you can build the fab lab you need, when you need it. Our project managers will oversee the project from start to finish with the HHI installation team.
