5th Graders Combine STEM and 3-D Design

SAM_2119As a way to integrate what student have learned with our STEMS Unit- Taking the Plunge:  Designing Submersibles, students from Mrs. Lucas’ 5th grade classroom are working together with ZVerse 3D printing to design an ocean-going vessel that will be able to carry cargo from Europe to the United States.  In our STEMS unit students learned about density, displacement, and the engineering design process.  Our students are using this knowledge to help design a product for a ZVerse client.  Students will be turning in drawings of their product design to ZVerse. ZVerse will be creating a 3-D model of each group’s design and students will then test their designs to see if they meet the requirements.  ZVerse is a 3D printing company located in Columbia, SC.
