3D Printing!!!


Good Afternoon FDA Families,

I wanted to share our newest addition to STEM Rec and the Science and Math Labs...a New Matter 3D Printer.  Thanks to our totally awesome FSO and their Teacher Grant program we were able to purchase a brand new 3D printer and additional filament refills.  We were able to complete our first test runs and created small keychains of the New Matter symbol.

As you can imagine the students are EXTREMELY excited!  In the 40 minutes they experienced the 3D printer several fifth and sixth graders came up with wonderful ideas for builds.  Teachers and Coaches are already working out plans and activities the students can work through related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (yay STEAM!), all while using the 3D printer.

Thank you all for your support of your children and our school!  I cannot say enough how much we appreciate you.  We are so looking forward to so many great projects in 2018!
