My Students

Every morning my students come in with the drive to push themselves and be the best versions of themselves they can be. By the end of this school year,‚Äč I hope to have my students all interested in STEM. By getting this project funded I believe I can meet that goal.

My goal for my students is to be at or above grade levels in all or most areas.

They love learning new things and getting to use fun and new materials within the classroom. Our school has a very diverse population and has a very positive attitude towards learning and creating a safe environment for every child. I feel very lucky to be part of a school that puts so much towards their students and who believes that every single one of them will succeed.

My Project

Hands on learning is the key to current learning in school . 3D printing technology turns students into creators. Instead of buying or consuming the creations of someone else they become inventors who can identify needs and create solutions. Although art is already making a bit of a comeback with the advent of STEAM education, 3D printing will help catapult it to the top. With 3D printing, students become designers and creators using cutting-edge technology to visualize and create their own imaginations. 3D printing is still a very new technology that is not readily available to your average consumer. It has a "wow factor" that can engage students who would otherwise have nothing to do with their learning. Using 3D printing in the classroom will allow my students to become a part of the growing online community dedicated to 3D printing. 3D printing is a technology that scientists and engineers are using to change the world. Put that same technology into the hands of your students and introduce them to some of the challenges facing your community. They will learn empathy, teamwork, and problem solving as you set them loose on a real-world problem.
