My Students

"We are in the 21st century and in desperate need technology in every class and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of the world"-David Warlick. A 3D printer would be a special asset in a classroom!

My students attend a Title 1 school in South Central Los Angeles, California.

Many of my students live in government funded housing. They all qualify for the free federal lunch program. All of my students are English Learners. A few of my students receive special education support services. All of them are inquisitive and come prepared to learn every day. They enjoy learning and get inspired by what we read and do in class.

My Project

This technology would be a priceless piece of equipment in our classroom. The Marketbot3D will bring our projects to live. The uses are endless. We can use it to create pieces and items from history, science, math and even language arts! The excitement and positive energy from seeing something form in front of our eyes is unbelievable. This opportunity would help create that love of learning and exploration of new frontiers. My students would continue to be inspired and amazed. 3D printing will bring virtual ideas to life and thus create a whole new way of learning for all my students!

My students would be grateful to have such an amazing resource.

I can assure you that this opportunity would be life changing. My goal is to make 3D printing part of our curriculum. To be one of the few to have this piece of technology would truly make a world of difference in my class. Thank you MakerBot for your commitment and dedication to education.
