My students need an opportunity to see their designs come alive! They can use the 3D printer to make cases for their own robots, car bodies, gear parts, and anything else from their imagination!
All our students are the professional creative force of the future. They are already certified in MOB Adobe Certification as juniors! They come from all the boroughs of NYC, and 80% are qualified for reduced-price/free lunch. They have the propensity to express their creativity through advanced media. However, there's a world of expression that they have not yet been exposed: Makerspace! Think about their limitlessness in the usage of a 3-D printer, a laser cutter, and poster printers!
Already, many doors opened for our students to be the creative force of the future with their education in media arts.
We are a CTE (Career and Technical Education) school where students have the unique opportunity to earn an Associate's Degree after senior year! Students are already taking college-level courses by sophomore year. Our students are highly motivated to become well-rounded students because they understand that education is their pathway to a limitless future. I hope to create a classroom that can provide them with modern technology so that we can build students who can thrive in the professional world.
The "E" in STEM education, engineering, is often undeveloped or uncommon in non-selective NYC public schools. Students have all worked extremely hard passing their Physical Science Regents. They have the knowledge, but there are no outlets for creativity, one of our school's core value, in Science.
What can students solve if they are given the Engineering Design knowledge, skills, and tools?
Students will benefit from being able to create their unique designs to solve engineering problems using the 3D printer. They can create a solid base for a mousetrap car to learn the mechanics of force in action. Or, 3D print gears to construct a robotic arm they programmed using Arduino. 3D printer is an essential for an engineering classroom. Our school is in need of one!
