This school year I decided to relocate our S.T.E.M supplies to our dining room. Last year every thing was upstairs in our makers lab closet organized but not easy to access. Now I feel we can be more productive with our learning.
My boys are kinesthetic learners which means they learn through touching, feeling, experiencing the material at hand. Their education is more a hands-on approach; with manipulatives and other "props" incorporated into almost all our school subjects.
Our makers lab is equipped with the latest technology and constantly being updated. I consider reading and research a part of my job description among other things. I really enjoy learning with my boys as I have always had a love for technology.
For this school year we purchased a XYZprinting Da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer. I look forward to teaching the boys the fundamentals as their adventure in the 3D world begins.
Below are a few of things we have printed so far.
