My Students

The students at my school are extremely dedicated and strive to achieve in each and every way. As you walk through our hallways, you hear the voices of the world. We have such an array of diversity that it makes our school very unique and multi-cultural.

Our vision is to prepare every student to be academically successful and socially responsible in an ever-changing and unpredictable world.

We strive to provide a safe learning community dedicated to high expectations for every student.

My Project

When a classroom has access to a 3D printer, anything is possible. There are so many wonderful knick-knacks that could be printed with some basic design skills. A 3D printer could also be used to teach students about things they may not want to touch, for instance, insects.

Having one 3D printer will allow students to print replicas of insects, by which they could use to identify species, without having to touch them!

With your donation, we would be able to receive a 3D printer, which will give access to more students to create! This 3D printer is ideal for us because we have such an interest in entomology because of our strong science programs. Our students are eager to build and create.
