Trenton Elementary School students share ‘illuminated stories’


TRENTON — A group of fourth, fifth and sixth students recently participated in the Illuminated Story workshop, an activity that combines art, creative writing and programming. Trenton Elementary School Art/GT teacher Connie Barnes and Cindy Lambert, the school’s technology integrator, won a grant from the Mount Desert Island Educational Enhancement Fund to use electronics and programmable LEDs to enhance the illustrations of stories each student wrote. Students used Chibitronics circuit boards and LEDs to create a lighting effect that heightened the feeling of the illustrations of their stories.
