Bringing Ideas to Life

The newest addition to the White Oak Middle School Media Center Makerspace is a MakerBot Replicator 3D printer courtesy of the White Oak Education Foundation.  Our students now have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life. Our first test designs have included the White House, the Empire State Building, and the Alamo.

The real challenge will be mastering the design process. This is where the real learning takes place. The Roughneck Tech Club will use design software like TinkerCad and SketchUp to bring our students’ ideas to life.  Whether our students are printing prototypes, artifacts or scale models, the goal is for them to be creators and not merely consumers in the education process. We would like to expressly thank the White Oak Education Foundation for always supporting the students of White Oak ISD.

Stay tuned for more news from the WOMS Media Center…
