Mr. Yu from Rosemead CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

3D Printer for Student Learning and Creation

My students need a XYZ da Vinci 3D Printer to print the materials they will design on the computer during Maker Space and Genius Hour.

My Students

We are a Title I school, and many of our students do not have opportunities that many other children have. I would like to expand and engage my students' learning beyond the classroom to include other areas around the world, their home, their lives, and their community.

With our current generation, students are more digitally attached than ever before.

I'm determined to help my students understand the beginning concept of engineering and that anyone is able to get into that field as they grow older. With the help of a 3D Printer, I'm hoping my students will create ideas into actual products as we do Genius Hour and Makers Space in our classroom.

My Project

Teaching STEM lessons to these students has brought out the creative side of them and allows them to develop solutions to ongoing problems in our school and even community.

My main goals is to encourage students to think about STEM careers once they're bound for university.

As a school, we don't have a specific STEM/STEAM lab for all students to learn by doing so I try my very best to facilitate it in my own classroom. Even the smallest amount of exposure will help them in the long run as they move up grade levels.

As I've been coming up with STEM lessons, I've decided to try and add CAD drawings into their 4th grade curriculum to encourage students to make models of some of their ideas. Furthermore, a classroom 3D printer would allow us to print out 3D models of students´ ideas or even solutions to problems. This would also benefit students who need different learning modalities to print out something that helps them achieve their learning.
