My students need a 3D printer for our classroom. I am trying to create a maker space for my students to run wild with imagination. The printer could be used by all classes and different projects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are amazing! I teach students of all cultures. Our town is an old mill town in which the mill has been torn down, so there are not many businesses for families to work or even to give students goals as jobs in the future. The students I teach are in 5th - 8th grades and are super excited about learning about and using new technologies.
Many of my students do not ever get outside of this small town, so giving them opportunities to venture out is one of my main priorities.
I want to give them just as many opportunities to learn that students in larger, more affluent communities have.
My students need to see a new world in 3-D. I am asking for a 3-D printer for my technology classroom. Even though it would be housed with me, I would love to share the wealth with my entire school and allow all students to use their creative minds. 3-D printers have the potential to serve a purpose in all subject areas, especially Science, Social Studies, Math and even Language Arts.
I specifically am asking for the 3-D printer to add to the Maker Space in my classroom- full "Imagination Ahead".
Maker spaces are places where students can be creative and innovative. With limited resources, right now we have just a few simplistic hands-on activities for them to be involved in. A 3-D printer would be a much needed and appreciated addition to the current Maker Space.
