About The Fab Lab With Crazy Aunt Lindsey
The mission of The Fab Lab is to bring accessibility, inclusivity, and representation to STEM.What is The Fab Lab?
The Fab Lab is the only kids science show that takes everyday science concepts and turns them into fabulous DIY projects that kids can do at home with their families, quickly and inexpensively, using things that can easily be found in the kitchen, the bathroom, or even the garage. Every project is eco-friendly (reduce, reuse, recycle!) and yields a result that kids can both be proud of and use again and again as all of the science projects double as gifts, snacks, or home decor.
Who is Crazy Aunt Lindsey?
Crazy Aunt Lindsey is that aunt, uncle, or babysitter we all had in our life at some point - that one who walks by the beat of their own drum, is always up to something super cool, and just seems to see the world a little differently than everyone else, but, no matter what, happily breaks for what's important: the kids in her life + family. You very soon realize this person isn't "crazy" at all!
Why is The Fab Lab With Crazy Aunt Lindsey so important?
Science is FABULOUS and has brought us all a very long way. MANY kinds of people have contributed to its advancement throughout history but for a very long time, the "faces" of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) seem to have been dominated by a very specific looking type of person and taught in the same way - often relegated to a laboratory or classroom.
From where I stand, science and STEM is for everyone...and everywhere! But persisting statistics tell us very clearly that entire chunks of people still don't feel welcome in STEM fields, let alone believe that they can be successful in them.
Three of the things I see as barriers for entry
- Science is expensive
- A University of Michigan study found that only 28% of adults were proficient enough to pass a test of basic STEM concepts
- There is a persistent lack of representation

I do this by taking everyday science concepts and turn them into fabulous, Pinterest-worthy DIY projects that kids can do at home with their families. Quickly. Inexpensively. And together.
Reaching the monthly goal of $5,000 in pledges per month here on Patreon would mean being one step closer to bring accessibility, inclusivity, and representation to STEM.
Thank you for reading. And thank you for your contribution.
