Student presentation from TLCHAT on March 6, 2017
Lakeside High School
Hot Springs, Arkansas
Jordan is in 8th grade at LHS
Minecraft presenter 2016-2017
Q1: How can you empower Ss with a game like Minecraft?
Gavin and Drew (3D Printing)
EAST Project with 3D Scanning
How it all started
We started out printing off miniature greek gods for world history projects
It was a success, so our teacher told us about a previous student who had tried to make a 3-D scanner system to print off actual people and objects.
We used his idea and ours, combined them together and got a scanner system going.
What is it?
Our scanning system is made from an Xbox 360 Kinect and a software system call Skanect
Basically, we use the kinect to scan people and run it through the software, then put it into Cura and make it a printable file on our printers.
Although it is not yet perfected, it works really well for school projects or to just show off to your friends.
Q2: What opportunities to empower S voice exist in our school clubs and programs?
Who we have presented to
We have presented to many schools across the country. We also have presented to librarians from all across Arkansas.
We have also presented this project to the Vice President Of Microsoft Education, Mr. Anthony Salcito.
Most of the time we are just trying to present to younger kids to get them interested in the idea.
We plan on expanding this project to the upcoming EAST classes at our high school.
We also want to have as many people informed about what we are trying to accomplish.
What is it? (cont.)
This is the type of printer we use,
It is made by NWA 3D and is very reliable for
What is it? (cont.)
This is Skanect,
Our printing software
That allows people to
This is what our tripod looks like that we use
on our scans. This has probably been our biggest
problem other than the printer messing up.
That is pretty much the whole setup that allows us to do this. It has taught us a lot about teamwork and responsibility.
We really like doing this project and hope it might inspire others to do great things as well.
