BHS students got the opportunity this past week to attend the Light and Engineering Lab at Stony Brook University to bring their scientific curiosities to life.
The students were tasked with constructing individual programmable nightlights that react to and sense ambient light. The students were able to work with breadboard circuits and created a prototype design in a program called Tinkerclad.
The group was then able to create their final products thanks to the lab's three-dimensional printers. This allowed them to see the fruits of their labor and see how they could create something simple and yet complicated at the same time.
