LMS Students Make Spinners

posted Jun 16, 2017, 6:50 AM by Liberty Middle School   [ updated Jun 16, 2017, 7:02 AM ]

 Students at Liberty Middle School are getting into the latest fad: fidget spinners. Instead of just fidgeting with these hand-held toys, the students are actually making them with Project Lead the Way teacher Clay Nelson.  Nelson's students are making the spinners with a 3-D printer, inserting bearings and then performing quality control on each one by testing them to make sure they work properly.

Liberty's student-made spinners were available for sale at Friday night's TIGIF "family Night" concert in downtown Morganton. Proceeds went to the  Liberty Student Technology Association.
