This week one of our second graders used Morphi to create her own drawn design. She drew on the iPad in the Morphi app to create her own special design. After she was finished she emailed me her finished .stl for our 3D printer.
Meet Morphi .... an app that will change how you and your students design for your 3D printer. This app is free with a school volume discount option for even more resources. I love Tinkercad but it doesn't work on our iPads. Morphi is very much like Tinkercad in the features that the students have access to. Check out theirtutorial videos.
Tomorrow it will be creating a challenge together using the turtles.
I am thankful for the perseverance and problem solving that these teams showed in this challenge. Yep... it was not a bust. The only way I can make a mistake as an educator is if I am not willing to take the risk. I keep learning this lesson with my students.

This past summer I was able to attend Constructing Modern Knowledge through a grant with Donor's Choose. It was 4 days of engaging in the design process.
1. Proposing an idea of something we always wanted to create
2. Finding common souls who wanted to create the same thing
3. Learning how to create our dream with others
4. Trying and failing
5. Sharing our final design
Instead of learning how to teach, we were learning how to learn.
