Drawing the future of science

Technology is constantly changing and updating around the world, but rarely does a new form of technology get introduced to the classroom on the middle school level so quickly. However, this isn’t the case in Mrs. Jennifer Boer’s science lab.

The science department, with initiation from Mrs. Boer, has began using 3D pens to create models and learn about science.

“Several of the science classes had eighth graders use the pens to create 3D models of Bohr's Models Atoms. The students did a great job with the project,” Mrs. Boer said.

Since the department only has six pens as of now, they are looking to purchase more due to the success of the first project with them.

“With little instruction as to how to use the pens, they were able to create their versions of the Bohr's models and we saw a variety of interpretations coming to life. It helped them to create a concrete model of an abstract topic to understand the structure of an atom and placement of protons, neutrons and electrons,” Mrs. Boer said.

In order to fund the pens, the science department created a Donors Choose Project. Click here for the link.
