Sixth Grade Ancient Egyptian Artifacts Project
The first major project to come to the Lab this year had to do with the sixth grade study of ancient civilizations, in particular, ancient Egypt. Students were challenged to research an ancient Egyptian artifact to create. They could do it at home or in school, so the Lab is always an option. Last week, 6th graders started flooding into the Lab wanting to 3D print or laser cut a variety of artifacts. Below are pictures of some of our students and the artifacts they are working on. Check back for more artifacts and for what these artifacts look like when the students are finished with the final versions.
