Making MakerBot 3D Fun!

My students need MakerBot supplies for our MakerBot 3D Printer! We need filament and painter's tape sheets to use our awesome 3D Printer in class!

My Students

Flat is overrated! We want our fun in 3D! Our computer room has a 3D printer from MakerBot and we need materials to make our ideas come to life!

Our population is very diverse - many nationalities and cultures and many abilities.

We are a title 1 school and in a very low-income community where most children receive free lunch. We have an in-depth special education program, a gifted and talented program and a dual language program. My new computer room services about 850 students per week, from Kindergarteners through 5th graders! And every one of them is mesmerized by the MakerBot 3D printer!

My Project

Our MakerBot 3D printer takes flat images on the computer and creates 3D items in front of our eyes. We are taking a trip to the MakerBot store to scan ourselves and we will be able to come back and create 3D images of each other! The filament and tape will allow us to use our MakerBot 3D printer in class!

My computer room opens up the door to technology for so many students who would never experience it elsewhere.

Through educating my students, I am also educating the parents. My students will grow up in a world completely surrounded by gadgets and technological advances. By exposing them here, I hope to teach them proper use and build confidence in their abilities.
