Tech the Halls

What started as a blank little tree in the iStudio (Innovation Studio) has turned into a festive holiday tree. Students volunteered to create original 3D printed ornaments to adorn the tech tree. A nice incentive of 50 house points may have influenced some. This is one of many monthly maker challenges we are having this year for all students. We want students to learn to use the tools we have in the iStudio. A lot of students don’t even know it exists, so this was a way to introduce them to one of the tools – the 3D printer as well as finding out where the iStudio is and what they can create here. Our hope is to now have them inspired to create more objects to 3D print in the future now that they have created something. Sometimes it’s just the first step that’s hard to take.
