Mercy Adds a New Dimension to Classwork
December 7, 2015
This year Mercy High School has invested in a new 3D printer called “The Cube.” This printer resides in room 120 and is crafted by a company named “Cubify.” Printers like our own, as well as others made by the company are even being used in the popular TV show, Project Runway. 3D printers are a huge advancements in global technology and allow us to plunge into the future. Mercy’s own Women in Technology program, as well as the Technology Club, will be using this printer in order to create physical models of programed designs. You may be thinking “Why would Mercy invest in this?” Ms. Brugh further explains, “Being able to prototype items is an important part of learning design.” From this purchase, Mercy students will now be able to take their creations from a mere concept on a computer screen and truly bring them to life. We will be using this printer on Tech Tuesdays if you are interested in learning more.
