MiscoeMakerCrew – Our 3D Printing Journey

Wow, am I proud of the MiscoeMakerCrew! Last Saturday we presented as part of the Student Showcase at the New England 1:1 Summit in Burlington, MA. We left Mendon bright and early and carpooled to the summit. Once there, we carried in our equipment and set up the comprehensive table display which included our actively printing 3D printer.

The Student Showcase started at 9:30 and for the next hour, our table was swarmed with interested educators from across the state.

Everyone wanted to watch the printer, touch the models we had printed, follow the video about our journey, and ask the MiscoeMakercrew to show them how we design models with our iPads using 123D Design.

We even met a Miscoe alumni, Mr. Patrick Larkin, who asked to have his photo taken with the MiscoeMakerCrew:

After the Student Showcase we listened to Burlington students sharing their iPad experiences, ran around the track for a while, and then it was time for lunch. We were happy to relax, eat, and enjoy each other’s company now that the pressure was off!
