3D Printing for Future Engineers
Help me give my students 3D printing filament so they can continue to make great engineering projects.
Our Robotics Team's goal for 2019 is to spread their passion for STEM to their community and beyond! "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." -B. Franklin
Our Robotics Team 968 has won 8 Regionals, 1 Championship, and countless awards for their engineering and community engagement.
Our students come from a wide variety of households with many of them being the first to go to college in their families. Our school's diversity of backgrounds helps to create a collaborative community. We place focus on grades and STEM and provide structure to those who many not receive such attention elsewhere. We strive to provide high school students with opportunities to experience real world engineering through robotics. Every year, our students are given 6 weeks to build a robot to fulfill a task at the competition. As the varsity sport for the mind, our FRC Robotics team competes in the excitement of sport, with the rigors of science and technology. We challenge our students to build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get.
3D printing will open doors for many of my students. They will utilize these machines to create projects to solve real world problems.
They will design and print 3D objects to provide solutions to real world problems.
With more supplies students can create more and faster, rapid prototypes of their engineering projects. This vastly accelerates the learning our students get. Students can also benefit with extra supplies to make final, end-use products that they can showcase to the community or create final parts that function on the students FIRST Robotics Competition robot.
3D printing is the way of the future! Students may print anything that they can design. Prosthetic limbs and full-sized homes have been created using 3D printers. This is just the beginning of 3D printing. Imagine years down the line when these students have graduated college and become engineers.
