Pitsco Education's January 2017 Teacher of the Month: Nichole (Nikki) Nalley, Petersburg, IN

What is your favorite Pitsco Education product and why? It is difficult to pick just one of my favorite Pitsco Education products. I use so many; however, if I can only pick one, it would have to be the 3-D printer we purchased a few years ago. In addition to the Synergy Modules, I supplement my eighth-grade Module with several 3-D printing activities, including the 3-D Printing: Vehicle Engineering Curriculum. I also use Autodesk Inventor to allow students to design an individual item/part and then allow them to print it out. It is just incredible to allow the students to be able to use the 3-D printer so they can go through the design process steps to design, make, and use their prototypes.
