Mr. Kelly from Pleasantville NJ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our 3D Printer NEEDS Filament!

My students need filament because they love 3D printing and learning "computer-aided design" but we have NO MORE filament. Providing filament will turn our 3D printer back ON!

My Students

Based in Pleasantville, a small city in South Jersey, our public elementary school is a diverse community of learners. From many different cultural, socioeconomic, and language backgrounds, we share our many different experiences with each other. Our student population includes many high-needs learners and over 90% of our student population qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch due to the family's low socioeconomic status.

Most of my classes throughout the day are inclusion classes and it is great to see all of my students collaborating and having fun using technology together!

All of my students have a passion for 3D printing and with your help, we could keep their 3D printing passion alive.

My Project

The 3D printing filament will allow my entire elementary school a chance to continue to model and print their very own 3D project for each and every student. The requested materials will provide the students and classes with the opportunity to express themselves through using "computer-aided design" to produce a tangible product that the students can take with them and share with family and friends. The 3D printing materials will make a lasting impression on my students and hopefully increase their interest in STEM careers.

3D printing also gives my students with disabilities real-world skills and it turns them into producers in this digital world.

All of my students love educational technology and it is one of my passions as an educator. I love being able to use technology to supplement and enhance my teaching experiences with my students. Providing filament for our 3D printer will help me be able to do this for my students!
