The Tampa Bay Advanced Manufacturing & Robotics Center (AMRoC) FabLab is dedicated to bridging the manufacturing and industry talent gap through robust project-based engineering education and training. AMRoC FabLab is a collaboratively organized space being installed at University Mall, near the University of South Florida (USF), as part of the new mixed use, city center redevelopment plans for the Mall that will include co-work space, entrepreneurship resources, social enterprise and USF College of Engineering facilities.
At AMRoC, youth and adults will be able to explore science, technology, engineering, manufacturing and related education and career training opportunities. FIRST youth robotics teams and other STEM competition programs will have design, build, practice and meeting space, and local entrepreneurs can access rapid prototyping and small scale manufacturing. Collaborative partners include Hillsborough County Public Library System, USF, St. Petersburg College, SOFWERX and more.
