François Tregouët recently presented the SDFAS 3D printer to the students of the Math club. The goal for students is to learn how to effectively integrate 3D printing in their learning process by effectively building/making elements/objects.

This is a great opportunity to apply mathematics to 3D geometry, and also to calculate costs and times of production.

Students will use their coding skills to define the structure and shape of geometric solid shapes. They will also calculate volumes and plastic needed in order to 3D print.

We plan to build a “Menger sponge”, working in collaboration with the students enrolled in the Maker Space Elective: our goal is to fix the damaged foosball table, which is in the Middle School recess area.

Students are very excited to discover this new technology!

(Mr. Giot, Middle Schoo Math Teacher)
