Project Funded by a computer coding project done by my students last year (using Donorschoose.org and Google CS First) as well as individual donations through Donorschoose.org.
Many topics in both Life and Physical science are hard to visualize, such as cells, atoms, etc. We currently use different apps and computer programs to try and help our students understand different process that are going on in the world around us, that we can not see with our own eyes.
Using a 3D printer with our Leopoly program will allow students to bring complex models to life that they can hold and manipulate!
This will also give them an introduction to current STEM projects an opportunities currently going on in the world involving the development of 3D printers, modeling programs, and even computer coding!!
