The future has arrived at Carolina Day School, and the technology students can't wait to show off what they've already accomplished.
One of the projects for the Technology class is to print 50 plastic tree tags for Carolina Days' Environmental Science class.
The students are designing other projects too. First, they write the code which tells the printer where to drop the little pieces of plastic to print the build of the object. About 25 minutes later it produces a product, but students say it's far from magic.
The first successful student design was a cell phone case.
Brian Turner, an alum and current CDS parent donated the 3d printer at the beginning of the fall semester.
