AMRoC Fab Lab Volunteering [HIL]

The Tampa Bay Advanced Manufacturing & Robotics Center (AMRoC) Fab Lab,  a program of the nonprofit Foundation for Community Driven Innovation (FCDI), is a public Fab Lab dedicated to building community capacity, empowering individuals through creative self-expression and bridging the manufacturing and industry talent gap through robust project-based engineering education and training. 

At AMRoC, located in University Mall in Tampa,  people of all ages can explore science, technology, engineering, manufacturing and related education and career training and certification opportunities,  with access to tools like CNC machines, laser cutters, 3D printers, hand and power tools, and more.  Youth in FIRST robotics teams and other STEM competition programs can design, build, practice and meet at AMRoC Fab Lab, residents can learn everything from basic home maintenance to earning certifications in automotive repair, computer aided design, and more, and local entrepreneurs can access low cost rapid prototyping and micro-manufacturing services.

AMRoC is largely volunteer staffed and seeks volunteers with experience in

  • youth science and tech education 
  • machine or workshop tools and equipment expertise, for maintenance or teaching support
  • 3D printing skills
