Ms. Sasson from Brooklyn NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science, Math, Art - All aided by a new 3D Printer WOW!

My students need a 3D printer to help them explore science, art and mathematics concepts in reality.

My Students

How is DNA copied? How do you see three dimensional relationships in Calculus? What is really so beautiful about Michelangelo's David? Help our students create objects in 3D.

Our students take a two year Bio-Chemistry course that explores both sciences and their interrelationship.

These sciences, are complemented with studies in Physics, Algebra, Trig and Calculus, creating a rigorous academic program. After Bio-Chemistry, our students explore Advanced Placement Chemistry and Physics. This year in Physics, the students are building a model of a roller coaster to explore many of the basic Physics concepts. How cool is that!

My Project

Working with MakerBot, a Brooklyn-based 3D printer manufacturer, we hope to furnish our school with a 3D printer, including software support! It is a new way to think about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. This device will help students to conceptualize the many ideas in our overall curriculum. These concepts lend themselves to development of physical models and hands-on objects. Starting with an idea, developing it through computer software and then actually constructing the object is an amazing learning process.

The printer will be used in science, art and even math class.

Our students will be exposed to current technology and expand their ideas and imagination. Could you imagine actually creating replicas of molecular structures? Let us all chip in and help!
