In order to maximize the creative experience of Tinkercad 3D Design (a browser based design program), Andor Kish, HBW's technology teacher, received a VFEE grant to bring a MakerBot 3D printer to the computer lab. The MakerBot 3D printer uses a heating element and spools of plastic filament to shape three dimensional objects like cell phone cases, toys, and even prosthetic hands. Mr. Kish taught the students in his design class the basic elements of computer aided design (CAD) and then supported their creativity with mini-lessons on shortcuts and troubleshooting, but without a 3D printer to print their final designs, the students would have been forced to remain in the conceptual phase. Mr. Kish's application to VFEE was awarded because it helped him to further enhance the educational experience of his students. We are really excited to see what comes next.
