Dreaming in 3D

My students need 3D pens to be able to create projects and discover new ways to build inventions.

My Students

My students are curious, passionate, and excited about learning. When they come to the library they are allowing themselves to open up to a world of possibilities. They are encouraged to learn, to ask questions, and to explore new ideas.

The idea that libraries should be a place of solitude and silence is a thing of the past.

Do you remember your school library? Was it warm and inviting? Did it allow you to explore and create new ideas? That is what I am trying to accomplish within our Library Media Center.

My Project

We want our students to see that any future job is possible. Since 3D printing is the direction businesses are going, we want our students to be familiar with this technology and begin using it now. This project allows students in grades 2th-5th to use 3D printing pens. Students will first spend time learning how to use the pens. We will beginning using stencils and walk them through how the pens work.

I want our kids to be able to use knowledge and technology as “a way out” of the current life they know.

Students in 4th and 5th grades will learn how inventors come up with solutions that solve problems or make life easier. We will discuss possible problems that need to be solved or things we wish existed. Then students will create and design their own product. They will use the 3D printing pens to create this product. My goal for this project is that my students start to see themselves as engineers and begin signing up for those clubs in middle school and thus opening up future opportunities for them.
