My students come to school from low income homes and often without the basic required school supplies. They all live in rural Alaska where it is winter 9 months of the year.
My students are very interested in creating an App as well as 3D printing.
Unfortunately, we do not have new and updated technology that allows us to learn those skills. I would love to teach them how to create an App and also be able to use a 3D printer to print something they have designed on the computer.
Students in my class would like to be able to create their own app to help others. They would like to be able to make movies/commercials to help promote it and also be able to design fidget items that could be printed on our school's mini 3D Printer.
A new computer would allow students to learn how to create and build an App as well as being able to design a 3D model and print it on a 3D Printer.
Our class room currently has computers that are over 8 years old and are no longer compatible with current needs, such as creating an App and 3D design software. This computer will help my students learn STEM skills they are interested in for possible careers in the future.
