  • My Class Needs 3D printer technology to give them real world hands on experience

    Launched October 12th, 2017 Project Deadline January 30th, 2018
    Classroom Size 30 Students School Size 700 Students

    My Students

    Learners from grades 10-12 exploring technology and have no background in technology. This will be used in the introduction to computer science and technology courses and for the advanced computer science and technology courses. Learners will feel more comfortable in technology and get them ready for post secondary studies.

    How will this project impact them?

    Schools should be able to have the technology being used in the real world. Exposing learners to this technology will get them ready for post secondary institutions. Give the learners the opportunity to explore career paths and experiment with different technology. Just like dissecting an animal in science or repairing a car in auto shop. These hands on experiences are priceless and open the learners eyes to different careers.
