My Students

My students come from a generation that struggles with feeling engaged at school. The majority of them come from a low socio-economic background where their priorities are easily drawn away from the realm of academics.

As this generation develops and joins our society, it is important that it learns valuable skills.

I hope to teach students how to use 3D design and invention software.

Engaging my students in their curriculum can prove challenging through the conventional, paper-pencil approach. I have incorporated the use of technology previously with tremendous success but lack the resources to maintain this incorporation properly.

My Project

We all have great ideas from time to time, but what is the difference between a great idea and an invention? The act of creation! This generation of students is full of potential and is looking for the means to make ideas a reality.

My students are quite creative, but I want them to have the means to create!

I plan to introduce this program through the design of a new bridge but the possibilities are endless! This Computer Assisted Design software can be used to design parts that can be machined out of metal as well as 3D printed!
