1st Grade Optical Engineers-Part 1

During the beginning part of the first semester, all 1st graders will be coming to the FabLab to learn to be Optical Engineers. Using a unit from the "Engineering is Elementary" program from the Science Museum of Boston, they will be learning about the characteristics & properties of different materials and how those materials interact with light. This program covers all aspects of S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering and math), is hands-on, project based and allows the children to work in cooperative groups.

The Lab was reconfigured for these lessons, so that each small group had a table/work space, as well as giving us a group meeting area, highlighted with our word wall.
