Four Fair Haven Union High School students participated in the annual 3D Vermont Town History in 3D Competition on Friday, March 24, 2017!
This is a collaborative Inquiry-Based Project, which truly promotes deep learning for all students involved. To compete in the 3D competition, students must choose a building or buildings, that have historical significance within their school district.
Our students chose the Wilcox-Cutts House, otherwise known as Brookside. Brookside is located in Orwell, Vermont. Students must research the building in regard to historical context and significance to the particular town. They must also create a media project which shows what they have learned throughout their inquiry of the building/grounds, and they must design and print the building in 3D!
Below, please find the final media presentation and associated pictures from the event! This is a Storyspheres they created about Brookside!
Attention, both students and teachers! Search this 2017-2018 NASA Software catalog to find free, powerful software that will afford you and your students rigorous, deep learning experiences!
Choose software from fifteen different categories, to include aeronautics, data and image processing, environmental science, design and integration tools, propulsion, electronics and electrical power, etc.
