Children used the laser machine to etch designs into pumpkins Oct. 24.
The Faulhaber Fab Lab celebrated Halloween season in style with a pumpkin-carving workshop using a laser cutter on Oct. 24.
Children visited the laboratory throughout the day, where they chose graphic designs online and picked out pumpkins to be etched using a carbon dioxide laser. The center’s laser machine uses an invisible beam that is directed into mirrors and ultimately reflected through a parabolic lens to laser the images into the pumpkins.
