Goal

To have the supplies available to allow students to design, model and ultimately print their creations on our school's existing 3-D printer. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will learn the industry process involved in the 3-D printing of objects. Students will first learn how to use the 3-D printer as well as Inventor software used to design 3-D printed objects. When we first begin, students will be given already created items that will need to be accurately measured, They will then input those measurements into Inventor, then the item will be printed. Upon mastery of this process, students will be allowed to imagine their own creations. They will need to first do a clay representation, then they will input the data, then finally print their object. 

 

Benefits to my students

T. Dewitt Taylor Middle/High school has one 3-D printer. Many in our population have no access to technology, much less internet outside the walls of our school. While this program will be geared toward 7th grade, the grade I teach, my hope is there will be full grade level involvement. Introducing our students to this technology is a must. Many schools have already entered STEM specific curriculums, we have to move quickly for our students' sake to bring them up to this level as soon as possible. I believe with the proper supplies, by the 2018-2019, Taylor will be able to use our 3-D printed capabilities to use in class STEM activities, Science Olympiad needed parts, and possibly Arts Olympiad entries based on the artistic abilities of many of our students.
