Grad student works with children at Haystack’s Fab Lab, Ellsworth American reports

Wade Warman, a kinetic artist and graduate student at the University of Maine, has been helping seventh- and eighth-graders from Deer Isle-Stonington Elementary School make physics projects at the Fab Lab at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, The Ellsworth American reported. The Fab Lab is a scaled-down version of a lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where artists create work using laser cutters, 3-D printers and other equipment. Warman was on hand recently to offer guidance, as students used laser and vinyl cutters to make gear-driven, mechanical devices called automata out of cardboard.
