Lockerby Expands 3D Program
Lockerby is pleased to announce the arrival of its latest technological acquisition, a new 3D printer. The "Replicator" joins our Afinia 3D printer which was acquired last year and another Replicator acquired just a month ago. Together, these machines will help our students in all grade levels make their 3D designs come to life.
3D printing came to Lockerby about one year ago, and to date, dozens of student projects have been created. Everything from toy trains, lanterns, ornaments, keychains, and even fishing lures have been designed and manufactured already.
Our latest printers bring new opportunities for larger prints, quicker print times, and even higher quality resolution of the finished product. These machines are moving into the grade ten technology curriculum with great speed but the machines are accessible to all students who want to design and produce their own objects for their respective subjects. Just one of the many ways our STEP program integrates technological knowledge and expertise across all subject areas.
