  1. Roxann Lynch-Burns

    Thank you so much for choosing Edwin Markham Elementary, Vacaville, CA, as a recipient of the Educate and Inspire grant. We are building our C-STEM program little by little, and the generous gift of two state-of-the-art MOD-t 3D printers is huge! Our 5th and 6th grade roboticists will soon be eagerly designing and printing parts for our Barobo Linkbot robots! And, as we role out the Next Generation science standards next year, we’ll be sure to put the printers to good work as we explore real-world engineering principles, etc. As a Title I school serving a large English learner and economically disadvantaged community, we can’t begin to express our gratitude for giving us the resources with which to connect our students to amazing C-STEM career pathways and passions. This summer, the migrant education summer program will also be able to exploit the powers of 3D printing (since Markham Elementary hosts this venture). So, it’s a double win for our kids!! THANK YOU!!!!
