Mr. Brzenski from San Diego CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

3-D Printer for Geometry Explorations

My students need a 3-D printer and the supplies to print objects and 3-D renderings in the classroom.

My Students

Math does not have to be a monotonously presented subject where worksheets are the main teacher. Math can include rockets, pictures, orbs, fire, lenses, gravity, and stuff being blown up. 3-D printed projects fits right in with us and our exploration of algebra.

My students are awesome!

They come from all over the city to attend our arts-focused school. These kids are extremely talented and motivated. They are curious and kind, and definitely want to connect to others. They enjoy anything that can connect between visual arts and their core subjects. We have Google SketchUp on all computers at our school, but lack anything physical to go with it.

My Project

Geometry is the weakest area of instruction at our school, based on previous year tests. Students love seeing the objects made in front of them, and are instantly curious about how it works, and how they can make stuff! Students will design and build their own objects from simple geometric figures, to atom models, masks, and historic replicas.

Many students do not like math, and cannot see where it applies in everyday life.

A 3-D printer will show them exactly how their math can be applied to a manufacturing process and create new and novel objects. The joy and wonder students experience at creating their own physical object from a bunch of math is priceless.
