(3D) Rendering What We've Learned!

Help me give my students the opportunity to apply what they've learned about the shapes and structures of both living and non-living things. This will help them display their learning in all new ways.

My Students

My students are from an urban neighborhood. The school is a turn-over school, having once failed to help its students learn. Now, under current management, students are encouraged to learn and expand their horizons. Students are taught to ask questions and investigate for themselves.

My students are enrolled in a general science class.

My students are learning how the things they learn in class (math, science, language arts/writing skills) all play a practical role in the "real world." They are also learning how they can be part of that world.

My Project

After a year of learning about atoms building into compounds and cells building into tissues, its time for students to see if they can "put it all together." Using the 3D printer technology, students will create models of various compounds, crystals, and/or human body systems.

It is no secret that students LOVE hands-on projects.

With this 3D printer, students will have the opportunity to not only design meaningful models of what they already know, but begin to design models of systems that may yet be possible. Taking a cue from many colleges, my goal is to challenge students to see the world around them differently and, perhaps, find innovative solutions that we adults might have missed. Whether they simply recreate an existing design or dream up new solutions, my science lessons will have been given new life and meaning through this creative process!
