Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 76

Due to Covid-19, I was unable to use the 3-D printer that was purchased from your generous grant as of yet. However, future students will certainly benefit as I implement 3-D printing in the years to come. In our PLTW course Design and Modeling, students begin by building hand-made models of their design creations. As the semester progresses, students take that learning a step further by incorporating their design ideas to a Computer-Aided Design Program (CAD). This software allows students to create geometrically-precise objects of their choice. The final step will be to transfer their design creations from CAD to our new 3-D printer where they can watch their designs being printed out in 3-D format. I am looking forward to watching the student's excitement as their creations "come to life" in front of them after all of their hard work. I am truly grateful to be granted this gift to our classroom and will look forward to sending pictures to you whenever we are able to get back to school and begin implementing this. 

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

The goal of this grant is to engage students in creating a solid 3-dimensional model of design creations they have developed using a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) program.  

 

What will be done with my students

The funds will be used to purchase a 3-D printer to create solid models of designs that students have worked to develop. Students first learned to draw isometric and multi-view sketches by hand as they began the design process. This knowledge is currently being enhanced as they take their design skills and apply them to a CAD program where they are learning to build 2 and 3-dimensional shapes and objects. Students will then save their designs to my flash-drive where I anticipate connecting them to our new 3-D printer, which will create solid models of their creations.  

 

Benefits to my students

A 3-D printer will engage our students as they watch their design creations come to life as a physical representation of their hard work and progress in technology. Students will be able to make connections between the initial stages of the design process of hand-drawn sketches to the final product of their design ideas and creations. Obtaining a physical model that students can show their family members and peers will help students to make real-world connections to science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  

 

Describe the Students

Our school is a Title 1 (low income) school. My Engineering classes house a diverse population of 76 students. Approximately 11% of my students are ESE (Exceptional Student Education). Only 4% of my students qualify as low-performers.  

 

Budget Narrative

The filament spools are necessary to obtain the appropriate amount of printing required to print 76 solid objects.
