I am looking for team members to participate in the prestigious annual 3D Vermont: Town History in 3D Competition.
According to the 3D Vermont website:
Hidden within the small valleys of Vermont are historical treasures - beautiful buildings with a past as rich as their architecture. Using the 3D modeling software Sketchup and 3D printing technology, the Town History in 3D Competition brings Vermont historical buildings and their amazing past to life.
High School and middle school students from around the state are challenged to work in teams to research and recreate 3D models of historical buildings in their area. In the process they uncover and document the history of buildings and create a multimedia presentation to accompany their printed 3D models.
All completed models and their accompanying multimedia presentations are entered into a now annual statewide spring invitational showcase where they are judged for their technical mastery, architectural accuracy and historical research and presentation.
Teams are encouraged to research, reproduce and document more than one building in their town.
During the course of the challenge, with help from their coaches, students will achieve the following learning outcomes:

Kick-off the school year, by joining the Book Club! We just started reading the Book Thief by Markus Zusak!
"The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak’s unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time" (Penguin Random House, 2017).
What do we do in the Book Club? We read the book, hold weekly discussions (both in-person and virtually), and when we are finished reading, we enjoy pizza and popcorn together!
Please click here to preview the FOX 21st Century movie, which is based upon the book.
