This year at Delton Kellogg Elementary School, grades K, 1, and 4 have the opportunity to visit the STEAM lab with Mrs. Cindy Matousek. She and I share the mentality that STEAM benefits students through hands-on activities, movement, and other principles of kinesthetic learning. We were really “hands-on,” as I showed them the concept of how our Tinkerzoo 3MD printer worked by adding layers. Fourth graders, with their Kindergarten and First Grade buddies, layered their hands on top of each other and described the effect. They were building with their hands!
Students are printing the individual pieces in Mrs. Matousek’s lab and will assemble the goggles. How awesome that they chose something to further advance their technology skills in class and a product that can continue to be used by the school district!
