My students need a 3D printer and filament to create models of cells and organs as well as learn programming skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My class is filled with a diverse group of students. Some are refugees and immigrants from all over the world, speaking 16 different languages. Other students had grandparents attend Central Middle and have known only the local community their entire lives. Whoever my students are, one thing is the same, they are curious and ready to learn.
My class focuses on a child's innate curiosity to study the world.
We work together to solve problems, learn about the world, and piece together how our knowledge can help in the future. With that, I like to link everything we do to the surrounding world.
Having a 3D printer will enhance the STEM activities I already have in science class. Currently students make two dimensional models of a variety of science topics, however, a 3D printer will enable my students to take their learning further.
Students will learn more than just science with a 3D printer.
They will be able to learn programming and design, important skills in the growing world of STEM.
The first project my students will be doing with be a collaborative classroom project. Each group of students will be responsible for designing and printing an organelle. When they are finished the class will have a model of a cell thy worked together to build!
