    Engineering Lab Wins Grant for 3D Printer

    With current advancements in technology, schools are competing to stay with the new trends in teaching practices to optimize student learning. Recently at Chariton High School the Engineering department purchased an Afinia H800 3D Printer. Leading the program for the printer is the Intro to Engineering class and industrial technology teacher, Seth Vernon. “I purchased the printer because it is cool, and it's going to allow us to go farther in class by designing custom parts and pieces we may need. We were able to pay for the printer though the Perkins Grant. So far we have printed a sound amplifier and multiple test items. We have compared our printer to those of other schools based on the parts we printed and ours showed to be of better quality and size.” The printer itself costs $2,000, not including are the price for the ABS plastic cartridges used in printing which are $30 each , which work like ink cartridges, only replacing them once so often.

    The printer will open up many opportunities to students as they will be able to design ideas they may have and print them, assuming they fit the size constraint of the printer of 10 x 10 x 8 inches, without having to go through another source or a company. Students involved in the related classes were asked about their thoughts on the 3D printer, junior Jacob Sommers stated, “I think the printer is a cool and useful tool, I think it's great because I can design my projects and print out physical copies instead of just relying on a computer screen or drawing for a reference.”
