    We completed the post survey yesterday. Implementation of my lesson on the bathymetry of Monterey Canyon did not happen due to multiple technical difficulties with the STL I had for the canyon- it was too big; with tinkering and help from our IT guy the file was sliced and worked. Next mishap was with the printer and software; our IT guy updated CURA but did not complete the process, thus I could not print. He was then transferred to another location, leaving me in the lurch for a few weeks. He did come back, and got the system up and running, but it was too late to implement.

     

    Long story short, in lieu of this lesson, I modified Bruce McFadden’s Chewing on Change and implemented with my 6th graders. I will send this reflection tomorrow.

    Hello from California!

    We are completing the Pre-Survey today.

    I plan on implementing my middle school bathymetry  of Monterey Canyon lesson towards the end of October; the post survey will follow.

    My lesson will take three weeks to complete.

    The lesson has been sent to Michael Ziegler.

    I have started a 3D printing and fossil club for 6th graders at our school in Santa Cruz:

    those of you that have similar clubs, do you have any pointers? I have students with a range of interests from fossil identification to wanting to 3d print. Is there an easy format for students to share their fossil finds, perhaps one of the forums here? Let me know what you think.?

    thanks Erin

     

    • Hi, @erin-lindberg! How cool that you are starting a 3D printing and fossil club at your school! 🙂 I believe that @cgrant, @jeanette-pirlo, @maggie-paxson, @skillingsworth, or @tmorgan should be able to give you some pointers!

      • This is great to hear @erin-lindberg! We could start a group for youth clubs, a place where all participants can meet and talk. They can use the forums for identification and ask more specific questions. I’m excited to hear your plans! Will they be scanning and uploading their finds to the 3D gallery? Let me know if I can help. Hey @maggie-paxson, how did Saturday go? I was scheduled to me at Montbrook and sad I couldn’t make it out to the creek.

    • We meet about every other week and focus on different paleontology concepts each time. We actually have our first collecting trip to a Gainesville creek tomorrow morning! To scaffold I did a lesson about Gainesville fossils and brought them two big buckets of fossil medium from the creek we’re going to for them to sift through and ID their finds. I’ll add 3D printing in the spring. My plan was to have them find a 3D scan of an organism they are interested in, and I wanted to have them do mini-presentations on the organism prior to printing it. My club is still fairly small at about a dozen kids, so I intend to let them keep their models, but this might become unmanageable if the club gets much bigger. Good luck! I look forward to hearing how it works out!!
