My students need a 3D Printer. They will use it print parts for robots and 3D Modeling projects while gaining valuable high tech skills!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students (150+) create amazing 3D models using Autodesk Inventor, but so far they have only been able to show off their hard work on a computer screen. It is time for them to hold their work in their hands, to show it off to their families and to use it in their robots, race cars and projects.
F Engineering Academy in Pomona California is a 7-12 grade public school.
94% of our students live below the federal poverty line. Our schools mission is to provide Pomona students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in engineering and open pathways to productive and challenging careers. My students are are hard working, creative and motivated. Their parents are dedicated to giving their children the opportunity they did not have, to go to college.
My students will design parts for robots, race cars and class projects using Autodesk Inventor 3D modeling software. They will then use the MakerBot 3D printer to print their designs and put them to use! Our competitive robot and racing teams will be able to make custom modifications to their projects. The ability to 3D print will provide my students with a tangible and highly motivating challenge!
With a 3D printer our classroom will become a fully functioning Engineering Lab.
We will be able to go from idea to physical object. My students will move from designer to designer and manufacturer. Thank you for providing them with the opportunity to use and master today's cutting edge technology!
