Our students are students that had trouble thriving in the traditional public school system for various reasons, including medical, motivation, special needs, and more. Our school does many different things to help these students become successful. Each student has an advisor that they meet with at least once a week. Each class has a maximum of 15 students. As well, students are given the opportunity to go to the local community college that our school is located on. Last year we were given a 3D printer. This printer was used in our Paleontology class. Students were able to use 3D virtual modeling programs and print their creations. As well, students used life size printed models of ancestor shark teeth and great white teeth and used formulas and measurements of the teeth to determine their size. Many of the students became inspired and expressed interest in 3D printing and Paleontology as a profession. This made me think: What if my students' started a 3D printing lab?
