– On 10th & 11th october,  the Fablab workshop will be held at Télécom Bretagne. Discover computer science through hands-on experience, harness unknown technologies through experimentation; this is the motto of Fablabs (or “fabrication laboratories”). Télécom Bretagne opened its “fablab”, Téléfab, one year ago, both to serve its students and to spread awareness as widely as possible about what can be done with a little imagination and electronic equipment.
