The Fab Lab is a website and YouTube series created by Lindsey Murphy that invites young scientists to explore the world through do-it-yourself experiments. Prior to launching The Fab Lab, Murphy worked in marketing for several years and also worked as a nanny. As a nanny, Murphy began conducting science experiments and projects with children, demonstrating a knack for engaging young learners with hands-on activities. Murphy eventually began recording these experiments and sharing some of these ideas in a column at Scientific American. As of this write-up, The Fab Lab features over two dozen videos that may appeal to science educators, out-of-school educators, parents, and caretakers. Visitors will find these videos by navigating to The show tab, which then directs visitors to the show's YouTube channel. In one recent video, Murphy explains the history and science behind donuts with a trip to Blue Star Donuts, a famous bakery in her current home of Portland, Oregon. Murphy also offers a free newsletter, which interested readers can subscribe to via a form at the bottom of this website's homepage.
