Makerspace With Fantastic Firsties!

My students need a KKmoon 3D printer to assist them in making their creations come to life. In addition, the Force 1 drone will help us document and create screencasts of our community events!

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

This past year, I made a few attempts to create a mini-Makerspace in my classroom.

Those makerspace activities were a HUGE hit & has inspired me to create a Makerspace that will live in our classroom full time. I'd like to really grow this piece of our classroom to assist students in pairing the makerspace creations with writing, math, science, etc. We want to work smarter, not harder in Room 21! My kids will love what I envision happening next year... we going to have a blast creating, describing, collaborating and really thinking outside the BOX!

Thank you for your support!! We can't wait to share with you what we've created!

My Project

These items will bring our classroom to the 21st century and allow us to really think outside the box and make creations never seen before!! The KKmoon 3D printer and Force 1 drone will not only peak students interest immediately, but I can't wait to facilitate my students in really digging deep and developing their capacity to be creators of the future!

After drawing and creating new objects with paper, students will have the opportunity to see their creations come to life with their new KKmoon 3D printer.

With the 3D model, they will be able to see where things are not working and how they can revise their specs to make their creations even better.

With our new Force 1 drone, my students will have the opportunity to see their community from above. We will be able to document school activities and create screencasts of our events that we can share with our school community.

This project will support students literacy, science, geography, and much, much more. I envision creations that we can apply all content too! I want my students to learn how to think smarter, not harder.
