Arch Reactor shared "innovation" with the Freshman class of Principia Boarding School

Freshman class at Principia Boarding School in Town and Country, Missouri get a week long taste of what St. Louis area has to offer and explores the city in themes of art, science, innovation, history.  

This year, the school's STEM lab leader Mr. Tommie Trailor along with fellow teacher Mr. Columbo led groups of 10 students per day through the city and for the innovation stop, came by the Arch Reactor.  

After a quick tour and brief history of our space the kids split into two groups where our volunteers demonstrated things like; the metal lathe, the laser cutter/engraver, soldering station, and 3d printer and our CNC machine/table and more.

It was a huge success!  Each day the groups were happy to take the new things they had made and for more pics and insight into the class trip, they kepts instagram journals that can be seen at #PRINUE2021 and #PrincipiaSchool and on our instagram @archreactorstl.

We hope to do this again next year!
