Mr. Eckert recently wrote a grant and was funded with a 3D Printer through Donors Choose. 3-D printers have brought about great discussion about technology, and the inventions, through time, that have had both positive and negative impacts on our society. What inventions have been designed to help people or address a particular need, but ended up being harmful to society? And, what inventions were created for violent purposes, but ended up being helpful in the right hands? Consider reading The Giver, and reflect on the fine line between freedom and safety. Research these questions and create a proposal for Mrs. McBride. Determine an innovative way to use his 3D printer and maybe he will print your idea. Here is another video from Ted Talks – Robots for Humanity. The Robohand. Start designing at Tinkercad.
