Mr. C. from Kenner LA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

3D Printing Supplies for Tech Lab

My students need 3D Printer filament so they can create items using our school's 3D Printer.

My Students

My students come from an underprivileged area in Kenner, LA. Just a couple miles from New Orleans, most of these families work in the service industry. The kids are extremely bright and looking to learn technology skills that they can use in high-level vocations.

Currently, our school can only provide them with training for MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

These kids have already spent a good amount of time with these simple Microsoft programs and are skilled enough to use them proficiently in the workplace. They are looking to take the next step to get a leg up in the technology sector.

My Project

These students are on the track toward a vocation. Some of them wish to work in technology but will have a hard time doing so without University. We want to create a lab for designing objects using our 3D printer. We currently do not have filament to use in our printer. We plan to design and create items that are in high demand. We will then sell the items to the student body in order to raise money, and in turn, buy more filament to replace what we use. We currently have a Makerbot Replica that was purchased a couple of years ago. It no longer has filament and will go unused.

I will use this opportunity to teach students about business and the design and creation of products.

We have already begun designing cell phone cases and other small consumer items that are in high demand. We believe that this business plan will allow the students to learn two valuable lessons at once.
