This year Winifred High School purchased a 3-D printer. The 3-D printer was purchased through funds donated by Winifred Grocery. With the 3-D printer, science students have made models ranging from plant and animal cells to little model cars and whistles. I think the 3-D printer is helpful and fun. One of the students this year used it to print out a human brain for her science fair project. The High School science teacher says it is helpful for students to be able to see models of 3-D images.



What advice would you give to a high school graduate?
