About My Students

Kai is future innovator who's currently an enthusiastic 7th grade student. He's been interested in computer science since he was young, and is well-versed and mostly self-taught in HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

His real passion is soldering and making his own electronics. Last year he created a gameboy in technology class with a 3D printed case. It's one of his proudest accomplishments. He's currently pursuing another independent project in technology using soldering to build a drone.

Kai's excitement for technology and design will benefit many of his classmates who will get to experience computer aided design for the first time.

Making technology a tangible experience will bring it to life for all students, even those who lack the confidence or enthusiasm for the subject. With 3D printing, students will be able to actually create things they can see and feel, which will motivate them to want to learn and do more.

In Their Own Words

To push the boundaries in math and science this group of diverse NYC public school students would like a 3D printer in the tech lab. With a 3D printer, students can explore their studies more interactively, and they can boost their creativity and knowledge of technology, mainly through using AutoDesk TinkerCAD software.

A 3d printer would allow us to create models in math, and do solid experiments in science, all with using AutoDesk's open source, free 3D modeling software.

I'll take a leadership role in this new curriculum by assisting our tech teacher in introducing kids to 3D printing software, hardware, and everything in between that students need to know to access their full potential using a 3D printer. We will also start a lunch club for kids who are interested in the physical aspects of technology.

Kids from all backgrounds will have access to this software and its abilities, allowing for a choice of ever-growing careers in technology, architecture, design, and construction. It’s a great way to visualize students’ thoughts, and a tangible way to express their creativity. Often kids think of technology as only software, but with a 3D printer and CAD kids can literally feel the potential of technology in the palms of their hands. With the addition of electronics, our school can expand our knowledge of hardware in technology, and it can be used by teachers to help kids visualize models in math and science. A 3D printer is a great way to experience 21st century technology in a physical form, and the satisfaction of holding a model that YOU created in your hands is priceless
