Students at Roby CISD received a new piece of technology this week when the much-anticipated Dremel 3-D printer arrived. Although its primary use will be part of the school’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, teachers say the tool’s applications can be used in several other areas of education.

Wanting to provide more experiences for students in her CTE courses, Roby teacher, Michele Terry presented the idea of purchasing the 3-D printer using state funds the school receives through the Carl Perkins Act. These are federal funds the state grants to improve postsecondary career and technical education programs.

The goal is to develop and improve the academic, career, and technical skills of those students enrolled in technical education programs across the nation. Terry said she plans to use the printer in all her classes to give students an opportunity to work with some of the most up-to-date technology they wouldn’t normally have the chance to use.
