Printing Our Future in 3D STEM Style

Help me give my students learn all that goes with 3D designing and printing.

My Students

I am a sixth year teacher working on my first year trying flexible seating. I teach in a low-income/Title I school district, and my students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. This year we were struck by Hurricane Harvey and our school was really not damaged, but the homes of many of my students were.

Despite the hardships they have faced, they are resilient and spirited learners making their way back.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able personally to solve the many challenges they face outside of school. However, I can certainly make a powerful impact on the eight hours they spend here at school every day.

My Project

Our class has had so much fun with a 3D printer that we got a while back. We have done amazing things with it and have enjoyed it so much. I would like to get another printer that is able to print larger objects because that is the major downfall to our first printer.

If we were to get another 3D printer my students could design and print objects for their science fair, we could create objects that they could see and hold to make what we learn even more interesting.

Our after school club has also gotten even more use designing tools and items themselves with CAD programs. We would truly put the 3D printer and filament to great use.
