Class experience

I have been 3D printing both in my middle school classroom and at home for nearly 10 years. My biggest challenge and experience came in the the Spring of 2020 when, like many, I felt powerless when it came to the Covid-19 Pandemic and wanted to find a way to help. When I saw on the news that PPE, especially face shields, were in short supply I found my calling. I worked with a group of fellow teachers to bring the 3D printers sitting dormant in our local schools to our houses to create our own “printer farms” capable of printing in mass quantities these desperately needed supplies. With 10 3D printers running in my office and the help of several students, we 3D printed and donated over 3500 face shields to nurses and doctors in need throughout the United States. This experience truly taught me the power that a group of makers can have to change the world. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Software Parental Guidance:
1. Cura
Cura does not require an account to operate and requires no personal information be entered to use the software. This software is exclusively preparing the model and creating the Gcode needed to 3D print.

2. A Tinkercad account will be provided to the student by the teacher. No personal information will be used in the creation of this account. 
Both of these pieces of software are COPPA compliant for the purposes used in this class
