Standing in Lowell High School’s new Maker Space at the Freshman Academy, he stood just feet away from the 3-D printer that can create anything he wants to draw.

In his integrated-science class, Colon has spent one week this school year learning about all the things he could print.

“It was very eye-opening because there were thousands and thousands of different things we could make right here,” he said.

The new Maker Space, funded through a $100,000 Massachusetts Life Sciences Center grant, features 3-D printers and a laser computer that will bring students to the cutting edge of the life-sciences industry.
