JES 3D Insects

Fourth grade pups at Jordak Elementary have been working in small groups in technology class to design and create their own insects. Scholars started off discussing their insects’ habitat and what attributes they would want their insects to have. From there, they created a sketch of their ideas and then created models using items found in the Maker Space area in the library. With the help of their sketches and models, each group designed a 3D model using Tinkercad. Once scholars determined their 3D model would stand and was structurally sound, they printed out their insects using our 3D printer. Teacher Mrs. Danielle Kinder says all the pups worked so hard on this month-long project and their results were incredible! Great work!
