Explore digital fabrication techniques to make your own medallions. After creating future artifacts, teen archivists will use Adobe Illustrator and BoXZY laser cutters to commemorate their future objects as emblems on wood and plastic medals. Once your medallion has been cut, explore how electricity works by connecting a LED and button battery to the back of your pendant to make it glow.
