The students in my classroom are typical 21st-century students who gain the most knowledge and understanding from hands-on STEM activities. I want my students to leave knowing more than just spreadsheets, word documents, and clicking a mouse. I want them to be creators and inventors of the future.
We have experimented with Makey Makey, Squishy Circuits, MinecraftEdu, Ev3 Robotics, Ozobots, Scratch, Code, Raspberry Pi, 3Doodlers, MicroBits, Bloxels, Sphero Robots, and Stop Motion Video Creation.
For many of the students, school is the only place they have access to computers and the Internet and can learn about computer programming.
As part of the 21st Century, my students need hands on experience using technology and building materials of the future.
The students will use the 3D pens to create models of different science and engineering standards we are working on in our STEM classroom.
The students will gain valuable experience using the engineering design process of finding a problem, making a plan, designing a solution and then creating a 3D model to share with their class.
Students will also use the 3D pens to create add on items to our classroom robots to help create solutions to a variety of different real world scenarios.
