MAHOMET, Ill. (WCIA) — Students from Lincoln Trail Elementary School are heading to the state Capitol in a few months to participate in TECH 2018.

A total of 98 school teams from around the state have been invited to the day-long event in May.

Team Helping Hand is made up of students from Mrs. Sandy Prather’s 5th grade class.

Earlier in the school year, the class helped plan, design and build a prosthetic hand for a Pre-K student at a nearby school with the help of a 3-D printer.

The class will show their work to legislators and the public at TECH 2018.
