TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Kindergarten students in Tarrytown learned how to make their own designs using 3-D printing.
Kindergarten students in Robin Suarez and Arielle Schneeweiss’s classes at the John Paulding School collaborated with Sleepy Hollow High School students from Mary Rosenberg and Jason Choi’s technology classes got creative with 3-D printers.
The kindergarten students said the collaboration was “exciting” and “awesome.”
The younger students were first invited to the high school to see the 3-D printers in action and design name tags using a computer aided design (CAD) program.
With support from high school “buddies,” the kindergarten students also designed robots using 3-dimensional geometric shapes. The high school students added finishing touches to the kindergarten students’ designs and the following week, the high school students visited the kindergarten students and painted their 3-D creations together.
High school students enjoyed the experience so much, several plan to work with the younger students again in the spring.
