The art teacher at School 52 (off Merchants Rd) is considering doing a 3D printing Art Club activity. The students would be in grades 4,5 and 6.

The idea is to teach the students Sketchup, have them create something smaill that can be 3D printing and then have the objects printing either through someone locally or possibly, if they can get a small grant, through someplace like Shapeways.

The first session is February 8th shortly after 2pm and lasts for about an hour.

Is there someone in the area that has access to a 3-D printer who could bring it into school during that time and make something on the spot. The snowflake with the revolving center section would be great or even the little two piece box that was made at the meeting1

Please contact me at 585-442-6526 or better yet via email at mslade1@rochester.rr.com or the teacher directly at 585-490-8546. His name is James Hines; his email is James.Hines@rcsdk12.org but phone is better than email.

thanks!

Michael Slade

I'll call you shortly.  The owner of Finnovation, a 3D printing company, has been wanting to teach 3D printing to kids by having them design "Piinewood Derby" cars that he would create on his machines. His business isn't far from the school and I think Ian will be very willing to this project if he can. – Rob
