My Students

We have an amazing Makerspace in our school and have students creating all kinds of great projects, including coding, working with robots, sewing on our sewing machines, making claymation and stop motion movies, using our green screen and audio recording equipment, and much more. Although we have a great space and wonderful, hardworking kids, we don't have a budget to keep the space stocked with materials or to add new items.

The MRU Makerspace is the hub of STEM activity in our school and allows our kids to explore areas of their own interest or show what they know for classroom assignments in new and innovative ways.

My Project

Our kids love designing in 3D on Tinkercad and printing out their creations. A 3D pen would allow students to customize their designs after they come off of our 3D printer or even just design using only the 3D pen. Many of our kids love coding, and robots like the Sphero SPRK make coding fun and let students see the results of their changes instantly. We field a team for the Vermont Technical College Bridge Building Competition, and the wooden sticks are one of the allowed building materials (along with white glue, toothpicks and dental floss).

These supplies will let us take our Makerspace to the next level!
