Grade: 9 - 12 Subject: Art, Fashion Design
This project introduces accessory design students to various shoe styles and 3D printing basics using two Adobe applications. After completing the lesson students will have made a 3D printed shoe silhouette on a base.
Grade: 11 - 12 Subject: Engineering, Technology
This project involves designing and creating a remote control boat that will then be tested on the water to teach students about boats and buoyancy. Involves field tests and a competition to collect objects at stations.
Grade: 6 - 8 Subject: Engineering
Students apply the Engineering Design Process to create a design for a 3D printed keychain. Students interview the client, create a design brief, create a prototype, print and evaluate the prototype, make changes to the design and print a final product.

Five months ago Basha Elementary purchased two MakerBot 3D printers. 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 Certification coursework was an incredibly valuable resource 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!
