My Project

My students are from diverse backgrounds. Though my students backgrounds may vary, our school families have very common expectations. Our school is known for having high standards. A 3D printer will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. Please help me give my students another 3D printer and get the supplies they need to use the 3D printer. Having an extra 3D printer will give every student the opportunity to print something of their own. This will also give them a glimpse of what tech life is like.

My students have such a fun time exploring 3D printing in our classroom.

The students in my classes enjoy watching the 3D printer print out student projects. Our 3D printers will mostly be utilized for science class projects, but I would like to get another 3D printer so that I can print prizes for my students which they can earn as classroom rewards.
