Mrs. Ayers from Clinton IA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Living in 3D!

Help me give my students a new 3D printer with carts to set our new one on and our existing one on. My students come alive and are engaged in the learning process with building projects in 3D!

My Students

Currently at CMS we work with 700 students. Many of our students rely on the school to provide them with ways to utilize and apply new technology so they have the skills to advance their learning beyond middle school.

The students in our building come from diverse backgrounds and economic statuses.

The learning experiences that will come out of this will immediately have lasting impacts on these children and all children in our building.

These mobile printers will allow each of our students to work closely with 3D STEAM activities.

My Project

All students LOVE technology. I teach a project based STEAM class to 8th grade students and I am the instructional coach to the entire school. My position allows me to engage all students in the school in 3D technology.

3D printers make all projects relevant and engaging.

They design and build keychains for a marketing activity, snowflakes for gifts, furniture for tiny houses, tower bases for tall towers, parts for levee systems, logos for shoes for third world countries, and many more.

This grant would allow the 3D printers to be mobile for all students in the building to use.
