On display for hands-on fun and learning were: a robotic color-sorting conveyor belt, a mini robot maze game, a home-made turtle Operation game, an electronically wired Rapsberry Pi power switch, a robotic hand and a light-powered Lego.Students created these displayed inventions in their Web Design and Robotics class.

"A lot of people really liked our project so I feel really accomplished," said Spencer Brown '21.

Bartram robotics and computer instructor said the event was an opportunity for students to share what they've been learning in class with their peers.

"These students have amazing ideas and it's wonderful to see them bring these ideas to life and share them with their friends," said computer teacher Mark Meyers. "We had over 40 students come to the Maker Faire and hope to grow it every year."
