3D Printer To Invent, Model And Create

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The ideas are spinning around in their minds and ready to be put out into the real world. This 3D MakerBot printer will do just that for my students.

I work in a 100% Title I school in Oregon.

Our learning community if a group of 21, eager learners. We are a STEAM school and I am fully committed to making my students into scientists. The love to ask and answer questions and creating is one of their favorite things to do.

My Project

If we should get this project funded, my students will be able to imagine, model, and finally create their amazing ideas and inventions. My students have dreamed up many things from water towers to catapults. They have always created them out of recycled materials. This MakerBot 3D printer with filament will allow them to make these creations out of actual filament.

If my students are able to imagine, plan, and create their ideas and inventions they will see themselves as the inventors and scientists of the future.

As a community of learners, we will be able to work together to try and solve problems and create things to make the world a better place.
