My Students

Our high school students are from a school that is over 71% free and reduced lunch, which indicates our economic status. Our school is in a small rural community located in the Ozark Mountains in North Central Arkansas. Our students come from various economic and ethnic backgrounds which creates a melting pot in our community.

EAST students use their skills in technology to help solve or assist in various needs that exist in their school and community.

However, due to the economic status of our school and our community, their resources are very limited. Not having the equipment, software or resources to meet some of these needs makes it frustrating to the students. Our students always try to find a way to meet their goals, but having the proper resources would really help build their confidence in taking on bigger and more challenging projects.

My Project

My students love technology. Ever since our school provided me with the opportunity to attend a PD that not only taught me about how 3D printing works, but also gave me the equipment to use in my classroom, my students have been creating project after project.

Because of this high demand for the amazing new technology in our classroom, I am requesting 1 additional 3D printer and extra filament to give every student the ability to experience the engineering, design, and even math that goes into creating with 3-D printing.

The single 3D printer that we currently have just are not keeping up with student demand. I am hoping to expand our resources and give my students the ability to experience and work with new technology that could inspire them in their career paths.
