A VIRTUAL MAKERSPACE is available at this link.

How do Makerspaces Fit Into the Library? 

MISD libraries seek to empower all for a lifetime of learning by providing and promoting resources and tools in a variety of formats. In addition to traditional reading materials, when libraries offer tools and resources they allow patrons to further their research and learning through experimentation and creation. Even Ben Franklin, the founder of the public library, used library spaces for many of his early experiments!

What is 3D Printing & How Does it Work?

What is 3d printing? 

Progress through Makerspaces Badges for 3D Printing:

Explorer: Join and set up your account in by letting Mrs. Rosales know you want to set up an account; go to LEARN >>> JOIN A CLASS. Mrs. Rosales will give you a 'nickname" (your ID # & first name) & access code. Watch THIS VIDEO to learn more about how to design in Tinkercad).

Voyager: Complete the basic lessons, then go to "Lessons > All Lessons" & find "Key Ring, Letters!" This will be your first 3D print. You will need the help of a Voyager (a student or adult with a little more experience)  to complete your first print, so let Mrs. Rosales know when you're ready.

Guide: Many experiences in 3D design and printing are required to become a Guide. You must also be very familiar with how to operate the Poly Printer. Watch this video and this video (make sure you're logged in to your school Google account),

Designer: If you have mastered the Guide level,  now be a Design Student Leader (DSL) in 3D printing. Help other students learn to design and print while you continue designing more intricate 3D print challenges!
