  • Students from Prestwood’s K-5 classes enjoyed a new experience this spring in the Maker Lab with two sessions building electrical circuits using “squishy dough” and LED lights.

     

    Students made little bugs that lit up, paper circuits and created their own “wearable tech.”

     

    The Maker Lab is an expansion of the Prestwood Maker Faire, which has been going on for two years, in an effort to bring the excitement of “making” year-round to the students.
