Thanks to the Golden Leaf Foundation grant, which is currently supporting STEM in Macon County, we were able to purchase ten 3D printers for our schools. The printer we chose is the Lulzbot Mini which is the same printer the WCU Engineering Department is using with their students.
On Oct. 27th, 20 teachers and 10 students from Mountain View, Franklin High, Macon Middle, Union Academy and academic support staff participated in a professional development on 3D printing. The Professional development was provided by The Science House through NC State University. By the end of the day, we were all printing and excited about the applications in the classroom!
Here are some photos from the day! If you would like to support 3D printing in the classroom, please contact Jennifer Love at firstname.lastname@example.org.
