OIA Students 3D Printing Their Own Classroom Supplies
February 8, 2021
Owensboro Innovation Academy Engineering Facilitator Stephanie Gray developed a way this year for her students to learn more effectively while also saving the school money on educational materials. Some students in the engineering program assisted Gray in programming the school’s 3D printers to print supplies needed, which was a big help with providing more tools for students to use at home.
Gray said these projects would not have been possible without the grants the school received from the DART Foundation, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana and Southern Star, which were all used to help build the student Maker Space. Those grants helped to purchase the 3D printers and other necessary equipment to effectively teach engineering students.
