Mr. Fuller from Neodesha KS is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a new 3D printer to continue our progress in providing them with more job skills for after high school.
I have a classroom full of creative young minds that are trying to find their niche in society. They all have a positive mindset whenever they are provided work in which they are allowed to get creative. They love their lessons to be interactive and like when they have a responsibility to fulfill and be included with the mainstream student in the building. We are always looking for ways to promote work skills for our students to help them be productive members of society but exploring all their skills and talents.
Hello, we are back to it again in search of a 3D printer for our High School special education department. We had a projected submitted for a printer earlier in the year, but closed it due to a kind donation of a used 3D printer from Neodesha Plastics.
The printer was perfect for us and my students began experimenting with designs, but about the time we were really getting close to doing something, it broke down on us.
For some, this would be a definite downer of a moment, but we have been able to turn this into a learning experience. We have tried to repair it on our own, but due to it being an older and discontinued model, the company has limited available parts and wants pretty good chunks of change for it. So now, we have a split group for the department, in those who are still designing things to print and those who are trying to aftermarket parts to bring ours back life for cheap or as they call it, "hacking".
Going forward, we are still looking at the same emphasis in improving twenty-first century job skills for our students. They will have so many opportunities opening up for them going into next school year. I am wanting to continue growing that list and of course, follow through on my promise to them that they will be able to print their school based projects and make them available to the public.
With this project, we have dedicated a lot of research into the product we have chosen. Based our selection on support availability, part and accessory cost and availability, have decided that this is the best suited printer for us at this time, and is one that we can keep running.
