5th grade 3D Printing

The 5th graders have been busy! Each student was able to find a prototype of an object or create their own to print. They had to be able to justify how their object would be helpful and find some sources to prove it. Some chose desk organizers to help at home, others created farm equipment to help haul more bales, and a few decided to print a phone stand. 

This project has allowed students the chance to learn to design and print objects using the new 3D printers our district received. It has sparked interest in designing and coding. 

Prior to this print the class was also able to print an ornament to take home at Christmas time. This is just the beginning of what the school will be able to use the 3D printer for!
