Mrs. LaMoreaux from Lancaster CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engineering with 3D Design

My students need a MakerBot 3D printer to enhance the STEM curriculum that they will be learning. We will be a PLTW Launch school next year K-5.

  • $2,669 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Knowledge is Power" is our motto and "Learning is Fun" is our creed. My students are eager to learn and challenge themselves daily. Students want to build designs they create and bring the engineering process to completion. Give them a goal and they will exceed it every time.

Our K-5 elementary school STEM program will be comprised of 800 students.

They all love engineering and challenges. Perseverance, teamwork and collaboration occurs on a daily basis to accomplish goals set. This is a public school where boredom isn't acceptable, students are in charge of their own learning and surpass the teacher's expectations daily.

My Project

My Project: Students work on a 3D drawing program to create projects such as bridges, dragsters, playgrounds and much more. The 3D printer and materials will allow students to print out parts, assemble their projects and test for real life circumstances. Students use math, science, technology, and engineering to make prototypes and test projects for strength, reliability, and success.

Your donations will allow students the ability to build to-scale prototypes and perform various tests for success, such as stress, reliability, and functionality.

If they aren't successful the first time out in designing, they can redo mathematical equations and apply engineering/scientific principles to adjust designs for success. This will bring real life engineering to the classroom!
