Fifth Graders Learn Tinkercad

012723_pc.jpg thumbnail240525

JFK Elementary fifth graders continue their lessons in Tinkercad with technology teacher Lisa Ciraldo. They have learned the basics of Tinkercad through various tutorials focusing on adding shapes to the workplane, changing the view, rotating, changing dimensions and so on. In their third of four lessons, students began creating their nameplates which eventually will be 3D printed!

The project idea was conceived by technology teacher Courtney Waldmann and is supported by a partnership with Manhattanville College. Once the nameplates are complete, the files will be sent to Manhattanville’s Center for Design Thinking where they will be printed out for the entire fifth grade class. Students will then get to visit Manhattanville College to receive their printed nameplates at the end of February.
