Building Community Birdhouses

The sixth graders at Orchard STEM School in Ohio City did an amazing job building wooden bird houses with the Mobile Fab Lab last week.

The pieces for the bird houses were designed using makercase.com and modifying the file to include a pitched roof, windows, door and a bird perch!  The walls and the bottom of the bird house are press-fit, so they fit snuggly together without using any glue- and cut on the Epilog Laser in the Mobile Fab Lab.

The sixth graders of Ms. Pastura’s class got to learn about lasers and the laser cutter and see it in action before constructing their bird houses and painting them bright colors.  The bird houses will be hung in the trees around the school for the community (of people, and birds) to enjoy!
