My students are impacted the most with hands-on learning. I do my best to have interactive labs and activities that connect to the standards. Tennessee has done a great job in incorporating engineering projects into the standards. Having a 3D printer will allow students to design a project in the classroom, then go to the satellite shop to print it out. My first project that I see the printer being used for is a project based learning module where the students design a "Newton" vehicle where they can attached a balloon and see which student's car goes the farthest and/or fastest. Science Tennessee standards PS2.3 states, "Create a demonstration of an object in motion and describe the position, force, and direction of the object." The student will need to produce a free-body diagram from the research and build of his/her vehicle. Standard PS2.4 states, "Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object." and Standard PS2.5 states, " Evaluate and interpret that for every force exerted on an object there is an equal force exerted in the opposite direction." All of the Newton's Laws standards can be summed up with one car and a 3D printer. Another example is building their own tectonic plates and associated interactions. Of course, the students' great imagination will challenge me to allow them to follow their path to use the 3D printer.
