Print This in 3D!

My students need a pink filament and a green filament to print on the school's newly acquired 3D printer.

My Students

Our students recently received a 3D printer for use in the media center. However, the students need additional Makerbot filament in order to print their 3D creations.

Our public high school serves approximately 1900 students.

These students come from a large military community with a variety of different cultural experiences and backgrounds. Many come from economically disadvantaged homes and will attend several different schools before completing high school. Despite these challenges, our students are actively engaged learners who thrive in a stimulating learning environment.

My Project

Students have been amazed at the concept of a 3D printer ever since it arrived. Allowing the students to design and render 3D images for printing, they are using an entirely different part of their brain. By offering such a cutting edge technology to students, we are preparing them for real world situations where they may have to think outside the box to design and create prototypes. Just giving the students the opportunity to see how objects are built will improve their function as working adults. Helping support these same students by providing the printer filament is paramount to student success with the 3D printer. Just as a regular printer needs ink, a 3D printer needs filament to make ideas reality. We need a pink filament and a green filament for our 3D printer.

Helping our students realize and harness their inner creativity is so important.

They will become forward thinkers through these experiences. Being able to use a 3D printer is especially important for our lower income students, who may never have a future opportunity to see this device in action.
