Massachusetts Life Sciences Center’s grant provides ‘Maker Space’ for Lowell High School freshmen
LOWELL, Mass. — Freshman Kyle Colon used a high-tech stylus as he played with the Cubify Sculpt 3D program on a computer.
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.
