Goal: Fourth grade students will design and create end of the year achievement awards for various subject areas, including art, music, and physical education (1 - Recognize exemplary individual academic achievement). Students will build a 3D printer and become familiar with 3D printing software. Students will use the engineering design process as they brain storm ideas for various awards, design a blueprint, print a prototype, and redesign as needed (2 - Provide artistic and other opportunities that improve student engagement as well as 3 – offering hands-on interactive learning). Finally students will print awards for 4th grade teachers to present at various award ceremonies. Students will also create items to be sold at the Panda PAL Store which is available to all students.

Goal

Goal: Fourth grade students will design and create end of the year achievement awards for various subject areas, including art, music, and physical education (1 - Recognize exemplary individual academic achievement). Students will build a 3D printer and become familiar with 3D printing software. Students will use the engineering design process as they brain storm ideas for various awards, design a blueprint, print a prototype, and redesign as needed (2 - Provide artistic and other opportunities that improve student engagement as well as 3 – offering hands-on interactive learning). Finally students will print awards for 4th grade teachers to present at various award ceremonies. Students will also create items to be sold at the Panda PAL Store which is available to all students.  

 

What will be done with my students

Nineteen students in Mrs. Stephens’ 4th grade classroom will learn to use a 3D printing design programs such as Tinkercad or Solidworks. Once the printer arrives, students will learn how a 3D printer works by building the 3D printer (JellyBOX). The JellyBOX printer is clear so that students can see how the parts work together to create their design. Students will then print a prototype of his/her award design. Any redesigning will take place after prototypes are printed. Fourth grade teachers will then be asked to pick the number of awards they need for the next award ceremony. Students will also work to create items to be sold at the Panda PAL Store using the same design process. The Panda PAL (Positive Attentive Learners) store is a token based store available for all Eisenhower Students. Students earn Panda PAL tickets for positive behavior choices and can spend them at the store.  

 

Benefits to my students

Fourth grade students will be given a 3D award for accomplishments in various subject areas, including art, music, and physical education. (There are 116 fourth grade students and six fourth grade teachers.) Students will work through the engineering design process as they create 3D awards. Students will gain knowledge in the building and creating of 3D printed models. Additionally, students will learn about economics as they explore supply and demand with the products made for the Panda PAL store.  

 

Describe the Students

Currently I serve 19 students (8 female and 11 male) at Eisenhower Elementary, a title one school located in Clearwater, Florida. Fifty-nine percent of my students are minorities (5 African Americans and 6 Hispanic), while fifteen percent are speakers of other languages. Twenty-six percent of the students receive additional special education support. There are a total of 116 fourth grade students at Eisenhower Elementary with a total population around 700.  

 

Budget Narrative

The "JellyBOX" is a made from clear acrylic and assembled with zip ties for quick and easy building. It is designed to be built and rebuilt to show students the inner workings of a 3D printer. I selected the dual filament option so students can create two color models. After all, Pandas are black and white. The variety of color filaments will allow students a wider color pallet in their award and item designs.
