3D printing allows students to turn their creative concepts into reality. Outside of schools, engineers are using 3D printing to save lives and protect the environment. Here is a list of how 3D printing is changing the world around us:
1) TeVido BioDevices is making products to help heart patients by making grafts or implants.
2) Musical instruments: Artists are able to customize their instruments.
3) Aerojet Rocketdyne is set to produce 3D-printed rocket engine injector for NASA. 3D printing may take us into space.
4) KOR EcoLogic’s Urbee is relying on 3D printing. Will you soon own a 3D car and live in a 3D house?
Students were able to use their creativity and artistic talents within STEM Challenges. Kids designed robots, houses, and pizzas online. Th
Our students used technology to track the weather, locate the International Space Station, and see animals in zoos. They loved to see the live data.
During our Math and Technology night, our students showed us how to be safe on the Internet. They listed things such as not sharing your password or pictures online. We are so proud of their display.
All of our students participated in the Hour of Code week. They used programming skills to make simple video games. We are so proud of their hard work. If you would like to try out the Hour of Code, please go to: http://csedweek.org/
South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius is the first double-amputee athlete to compete at the Olympics. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Pistorius raced in the 400 meter race and 4x400 meter relay using a pair of carbon fiber prosthetic legs engineered to store and release energy from the impact of his strides. "Science of the Summer Olympics: Engineering In Sports" is a 10-part video series produced in partnership with NBC Learn.
How will you use your knowledge, skills, and talents in STEM to make the world a better place?
