3D Printing is Awesome!

Help me give my students materials to create 3d science models with our Dremel 3D printer.

My Students

Hello! Thank you for visiting my DonorsChoose page. I have the most amazing and wonderful sixth grade students who love to learn science. My students are very diverse and have varying needs; however, the one common factor is the importance to interact collaboratively with technology. They greet every learning experience with enthusiasm and creativity.

My students are kind, hard workers, beginning scientists, and have a passion to learn!

Our school does not qualify for Title I funding, and with our current demographic mix, we are on the lower end of assistance from the state and county. We often use our own funds to ensure our students receive the tools they need to succeed. Any assistance you provide would be greatly appreciated.

My Project

My project 3D Printing is AWESOME will provide new filament in an array of colors. The PLA filament is used in our Dremel 3D printer. This will allow my science students to learn how to create printing blueprints with Tinkercad. My science students will be able to create 3D models to master science concepts. For example, students will be able to print gears that go together to use in their Rube Goldberg Machines. 3D printing is an exciting component to my science classroom and the students enjoy every aspect....even just watching the 3d printer print.
