  1. I'm teaching a summer course at Harding School of Theology and need some materials. It's absolutely frightening how much (the exact numbers are on this site) a child's brain is affected and grows in those "formative years" yet with there is no mandated curriculum nor public nursery schools. And the amount of kids that are "diagnosed" with issues or show behavioral problems from these paid-for private schools and day cares is way too high.

Getting Started with 3D Printing: Part 1

By now, it is likely that you have seen or heard of the concept of 3D printing.  The easiest way to think of it is taking a 3D model off of the computer and turning it into a real life product.  3D printing is an additive manufacturing process so there is very little waste when you make objects.

When you decide to get started yourself, it can be VERY overwhelming trying to figure out which 3D printer to buy and how to even begin.  In this series of blog posts, I intend to share some first hand tips on how to make that process easier and help you avoid some mistakes that I have made.

Finding a Printer

Congratulations, you have examined your educational goals and figured out that a 3D printer would be a good fit for you and your students!  Expect that you will need to have a budget of approx. $700 to $1000 to get started.  That would include the cost of the machine, and a spool of filament.

Here at the RESA we have a RoStock MAX v2 ($1000 for the kit) and a Polar 3D printer ($600.) There…

Cardboard Creation Extravaganza!

"Cardboard is the gateway for all makers!" - Adam Savage

On Saturday October 7th, Joe and I took a pallet of cardboard, Makedo connectors, and some markers and crayons and invaded the gymnasium at Lincoln Elementary in St. Joe.  This event was inspired by the Global Cardboard Challenge which stemmed from the inspiration of Caine's Arcade.



We had approximately 40 students and parents show up for this day of creativity. The best part was being able to see the students eyes light up when they saw the pile of cardboard and were told that they could make anything that they wanted.  Even the parents loved this instruction! After about 2 hours, we had a lighthouse, multiple houses, a geodesic dome, and a rocket with launchpad. 

In terms of event planning, this is one of the easiest that you can pull off at your school. Joe and I have a source for cardboard that we can connect you with and help you gather the tools that make the day easier.  Check out some of the photos to see …
