My students need a 3D printer to make human physiology come to life!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The students at the high school I teach at are all about the process of learning, not just the outcome. Recently, they organized a school wide anti-vaping social media campaign. There's nothing quite like seeing your students teach their peers what they have learned and really want to make a difference on campus. Our school is really a great place to be because of our students.
These kids come from all walks of life and yet despite their differences can readily come together to accomplish any tough task.
My Biomedical Science Students want to take their knowledge of human physiology to the next level! They are part of the PLTW Biomedical Science pathway on campus and are some of the brightest problem solvers I have ever had the pleasure of teaching. They want to take what they are learning about preventable diseases and share their knowledge with the community by creating 3D models to share and present at campus outreach events.
Bringing a MakerBot 3D printer into the classroom will allow my Biomedical Science students to build their own physiology models. They can design and create prosthetic limbs, make teaching models to demonstrate various preventable diseases including Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and even model various physiological processes in a hands-on way.
3D printing has made its way into Health Sciences and Medicine, and I want my students' experience in class to be on the cutting edge of that technology.
The 3D printer and filament will bring that technology and engineering side of medicine to life in my classroom. I am so excited to see what they can design and the impact it will have on their learning.
