Kindergarteners Use 3-D Printer
The Kansas Star Casino Foundation is committed to enhancing education in Sumner County. They have supplied each school in Sumner County with a 3-D printer. This printer was received by our school at the first of the school year, and students and teachers are using it to extend science and math concepts. Physics students are using the printer for their projects, and this month the kindergarten students drew insects and then created a 3-D model of their insects on the printer. Teachers and students took additional training on the printer in January, so look for more projects using the printer in the future.
