Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are digital natives who have an intrinsic interest in technology. They approach each task with a positive attitude and boundless enthusiasm and are an utter joy to teach.

Our school is a public, magnet, science and technology academy.

My students are highly capable and have generally chosen to attend our school, because they have an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Technology is an integral part of their learning and their lives.

My Project

The MakerBot Replicator 2 3D Printer will allow my students to use cutting edge technology to create and bring their 3D models to life. Through the use of this technology students will be engaged in authentic activities that will allow them to design, create, collaborate, and share.

Albert Einstein said, "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination." Your donation will allow our children to be creative, to experiment, take risks, problem-solve, and play.

They will use the newest technologies to design and create. The will be inventors.
