partnering with the fab foundation
Chevron is committed to advancing STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – education initiatives. This includes project- and problem-based learning, which enables students to build on their classroom experiences by engaging in hands-on activities and solving problems.
In 2014, Chevron partnered with the Fab Foundation to bring its fabrication labs (Fab Labs) to areas where Chevron operates across the United States. The Fab Foundation provides access to tools and technology in order to educate, innovate and invent.
Each Fab Lab consists of a suite of digital fabrication and rapid prototyping machines including 3-D printers. Working in Fab Labs, students can develop the critical thinking, problem solving and analytical skills needed to be future innovators.
