In January 2018, Basha Elementary purchased two MakerBots. We began with specialty projects to build student interest. In February, third and fourth grade students were invited to join the Creative Filament 3D Printing Club. This year, the focus was to master the workflow of Thingiverse and the MakerBot software as well as create and print original designs. Our aspirations for 2018-2019 are to offer an Intro to Printing and an Advanced CAD Concepts Club.
The MakerBot Operator and Curriculum Creator coursework were incredibly valuable resources as students printed their design models in our first year. The built in system of support made it an enjoyable learning experience for myself, and working alongside of students during these first few months has been so insightful!
