Both the presenters and event facilitators are not responsible for guaranteeing your virtual seat. We have tried to employ strategies to reduce the chance of this from happening.

The "Beauty" of Connecting Literacy and 3-D Design

Feedback form is now closed.
We will be presenting an overview of our School Wide Read with the book Beauty and the Beak. This book allowed us to connect literacy and STEAM in a unique way with our students and faculty. After reading the book about an injured eagle that required a 3-D printed beak in order to survive, students were given different scenarios of injured animals (stuffed animals missing limbs, tails, etc.), and tasked with designing their own 3-D models as solutions for survival. We will have the winning models for participants to examine, a 3-D printer printing a design, and additional book titles that incorporate literacy and STEAM topics where 3-D printers have solved unusual problems for animals. A brief demo of the 3-D design software will be given and participants will be encouraged to create their own design. All materials presented will be shared so that participants can use these ideas within their own schools.
