My Students

Our school is a Title I PreK-5th grade school that serves approximately 600 students.

Our school library collaborates with every classroom in the school to offer innovative projects.

Some of our biggest goals in the library are to allow students the opportunity to dream, tinker, create, and share as well as empower their voice to think and act globally. We often connect with schools, authors, and developers via Skype and Google Hangouts in order to allow our students to share their work with authentic audiences as well as collaborate globally. In our library makerspace, we collaborate with a college class who works with students every Tuesday and Thursday. Students throughout the school have access to the makerspace no matter what their age or grade level.

My Project

Our makerspace is a bustling place of tinkering, creativity, and innovation. Students from Prek-5th grade have explored 3D design using multiple tools and our 3D printer. We love these tools, but the speed of 3D printing prohibits large groups of students experiencing 3D Design.

Having a set of 3D Doodler pens would increase the access our students have to 3D design.

The art teacher and I would be able to increase the number of projects that we collaborate on with one another and allow more students to create 3D art as well as exhibit work in our district maker showcase which will take place in our community in April.

In addition to art, I want to give students opportunities to create their own inventions, book projects, and solutions to problems which can also be showcased at our spring maker showcase.
