Brenchie’s Lab

IMG_20180417_161637

Brenchie’s Lab started in 2015 as a self-built makerspace, and has played a key role in the development of a network of Fab Labs and makerspaces around Aruba. With its main location in the National Library of Aruba, in the capital city of Oranjestad, the space is open to the public five days a week to support students, artists, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, and curious folks interested in the potential of digital fabrication, open technology, and co-learning. Since opening, the lab has fostered the initiation of the island’s only plastic recycling facility, inspired the government to support a mobile makerspace visiting schools in a retrofitted library bus, sparked several schools to start integrating creative spaces and maker skills into their curricula, and has recently begun construction on a second location at the recently reopened National Library of Aruba in San Nicolas.
