Third grade boys explore the world of 3D printing

Boys 3D print dogs and build sleds, a project connected to the book they've just completed in reading group. 
This week boys in Mrs. O'Ferrall's third grade reading group visited the Upper School BUILD Lab where Ms. Pohanka and Mr. Jump let them explore the world of 3D printing. The boys just finished reading the novel Silver, a story about sled dog racing in Alaska. In connection with the book, boys printed 3D dogs and built sleds using the design, build, test, and learn process. They then raced their sleds on the playground during recess. 

These boys are definitely ready for the Iditarod!
