All over the world, the maker movement and maker concept have become very popular in recent years. This has an impact on more and more educational institutes. To motivate their students, to improve their STEM* education, many schools organise tours to the nearest Fab Lab, promote project activities there or set-up their own Fab Lab embedded in their school. In fact, it is a new trend in social constructivism (Libow Martinez & Slager, 2013).
