New 3D printer at St. Mary School

February 05, 2021

St. Mary students are learning how to design 3D objects using Tinkercad software and then printing them out using the DaVinci Jr. 1.0 3D printer. This tremendous opportunity has been made possible through the generosity of Mr. Craig Cooper, the grandfather of a kindergarten student. He donated the printer to St. Mary School. Mrs. Dober, the kindergarten teacher has been hard at work learning how to create with the device. She is now working her way through each of the classrooms instructing the teachers and students on how to design and create their own initial key ring. Below are photos of the new printer, the design software, and some sample items created by 3rd graders.

Thank you, Mr. Cooper for providing St. Mary students with this awesome opportunity to learn and create!
