Why 3D Printing?

Why 3D Printing?

Miss VanBuskirk's 4th Grade Students

Very simply, 3D printing brings the virtual creation to life.

Online design programs, such as Tinkercad, give students the opportunity to create and design 3-dimensional objects.

3D Design Process

While we begin with providing our younger elementary students hands-on materials, the online platform is another level of design. Within this plane, we talk about scale, dimensions, and measurement. We can tie in geometry and computer science standards. We can pose questions to problems for students to solve. The curricular ties are endless in the planning, design, and actual build.

Examples of our prints... With 3D printing, we are building relevance into our STEAM curriculum. A 3D print puts that creation in our children’s hands.
