3D Printing the future
What can I do to increase my student’s problem solving skills and encourage innovation. Students are required to come up with new innovations or ideas to solve the problems they encounter in everyday life. Things began slowly at first but over time, the student thought up many new and exciting products – stands for their headphones, new tools and parts to get into hard to reach places on computers are among the few. For this initiative, we will purchase a Craft Bot plus 3d printer and solve problems. Students will interview department heads to find out problems they might be having and how we can help. We will design new tools for carpentry or auto shop classes, produce a real life model of a heart with detachable chambers for nursing students, or drones. The only limit will be the imagination of my students. Students will be learning hard and soft skills to help them transition to life.
