School 3D Printing
Help me give my students a MakerBot extruder to keep using to 3D print for our school.
I'm fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs with rigorous teaching strategies, and we expect only the best from our students.
My school is proud to be a Leader in Me school that works on taking the 7 Habits of author Steven Covey, making them age-appropriate, and working them into our school campus so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.
Leader in Me is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.
Students learn the habit of solving conflicts, and then they become conflict managers. This is just one way the Leader in Me program looks on our campus. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, these are all ways that the 7 Habits teach students to lead.
I am requesting a Makerbot 3D Smart Extruder that is needed for our school 3D printer. Students use this 3D printer to print things for what our school needs. For example, whistles for safety patrol, blocks for kindergarten, and ducks with webbed feet for 3rd grade. Students design on the computer, then 3D print their designs using the 3D printer. The requested extruder is needed to continue 3D printing. Students look forward to this every week! They love thinking of ideas to help bless their school. It is fun to see their ideas come to life using 3D printing. Thank you!
