My students need the 3Doodler pens to create models of science concepts.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Many of my students come to me from low income families. Single parents are raising most of our students. Ten percent of my students live with a grandparent or a foster parent due to their parents being unfit. Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
I try to be an emotional support to as many of my students as I can.
I provide supplies to many of my students because they just don't have the money for school supplies. They come to me without many of the skills they need for seventh grade. Around 60% of my students are below grade level. This is a result of many of them attending different schools throughout their education.
I am in a transient district, which adds to the struggles of the students who move around a lot. In order to catch my students up to grade level, I have to help them work on fluency and skills from lower grades.
3Doodler Pens can be used for a large number of science concepts. Many concepts are hard for students to understand because they can't picture them and they don't see the concepts in their everyday life. Many of my students are hands-on learners and these Pens will allow them to learn concepts in a more concrete and fun way.
These 3D pens will allow my students to create topographic maps and quickly gain an understanding of how those paper maps represent real life mountains and hills.
These can also be used to help design tectonic plates and show the movement of those plates. These are very versatile and will be able to be used for teaching many concepts to my students.
