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.
