Our entire middle school community designed and created decorative cubes for the school lobby. The students 3D printed stencils to stamp into clay tiles that were used to complete the cubes. The project integrated science, social studies, art and technology. Watch the movie of the process and finished project.

Our project integrated three disciplines to complete fine arts 3D imprinted tiles that were aligned to our science and social studies curriculum. The students researched items that would fit into either their social studies or science studies. Then they designed in CAD (TinkerCAD) and 3D printed the items as stamps or cut outs. The 3D printed items were pressed into tiles of clay and then put into the kiln. Once the tiles were ready they were attached to large wooden cubes. The finished cubes are displayed in the main lobby of the school and can be used as tables or for seating.
At Open House the cubes were unveiled to all of the parents. Everyone was thrilled with the completed project. Our favorite was the seventh grade cube that incorporated nature from science and state history from social studies.
Each participant that stops at our ISTE display would be able to use one of the stamps or cut outs that our students 3D printed. The participant will be able to take their tile with them. They make great coasters or as drink holders in cars.
