3D Motivation

Help me give my students 3D printers. for an opportunity to learn and experience 3D printing technology that scientists and engineers are using to change the world.

My Students

As a technology teacher in an urban low-income/high-poverty community, my students face many challenges in and out of the classroom. I teach a very diverse population where providing equity to curriculum and material is very important. My students come from a variety of social and economic backgrounds. Many students don't have access to resources that are needed to prepare them for a 21st century world that is dominated by technology.

I would love to be able to give my students the opportunity to experience technology in ways that can help them advance academically.

My Project

3D printing technology will position my students as creators. Instead of buying or consuming the creations of someone else they will become inventors who can identify needs and create solutions.

With 3D printing, my students will become designers and creators using cutting-edge technology to visualize and create their own imaginations.

I know my students will have growth in their spatial reasoning skills and 2D to 3D conversion understanding. 3D printing will have a ‘wow factor’ that will engage my students who struggle with being motivated to learn. Students who are typically reluctant learners will come to life. The whole class will learn and participate with enthusiasm!
