3D Printing in STEAM

Help me give my students a 3D printer and filament so they may explore.

My Students

Students in my school are able to apply their developing knowledge of mathematics and science using technology. We use hands-on materials and learning through experiences and challenges.

Over 95% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, but students still respond to our enthusiastic, caring teachers and staff.

Students are expected to work hard and maintain a consistent effort. They are highly motivated and enjoy challenging themselves. They work well in collaboration with their peers and are always creative in their solutions.

My Project

My STEM classroom is a place for students to challenge each other, collaborate, create, and engage with new technologies and multiple learning styles. The integration of STEM into schools is growing around the country. The space in my school allows students to carry out projects, collaborate, explore, explain, and develop their creativity. All while discovering new technologies such as robotics, 3D printing or computer programming and coding.

Students will benefit from the collaborative and creative nature that 3D printing will require.

The ability to use 3D printing and modeling will create a high degree of student engagement and students will show a definite interest in creativity and the conceptual approach.
