We run a global distributed academy for everyone who wants to learn how to make (almost) anything.

Academany is the first global distributed campus for learning how to make, and grow, almost anything. Learn more about our courses:


We offer advanced technical education through the Fab Academy which provides instruction and supervises investigation of mechanisms, applications, and implications of digital fabrication. The Fab Academy is a worldwide, distributed campus utilizing fab labs as classrooms and libraries for a new kind of technical literacy. Students learn in local workgroups, with peers, mentors, and machines, which are then connected globally by content sharing and video for interactive classes.
