Makerbot Education


The Rancho Solano Preparatory School reigning from Scottsdale, Arizona has stood out from the rest as a private pre K-12 school that fosters dynamic learning and prepares students with the skills needed to succeed in our modern world. Their academic vision as stated is to “cultivate in our students the ingenuity to thrive in a global society and to be architects of their future”.

Shannon Feaster, a member of the MakerBot Educator program, is a science teacher in the 4th and 5th grade. For 20 years, she has excelled at teaching beyond academic books to uphold the high standard of Rancho Solano.

Starting in August 2016, Shannon has used the MakerBot Replicator and the Makerbot Replicator Mini to enforce a dynamic learning environment in design with the use of 3D printed projects. This equipment has allowed her to teach in a style that compels her students to think outside the box, solve real-world problems and learn skills larger than life.
We caught up with Shannon to find out exactly how MakerBot’s 3D printing technology has allowed her to evolve her classroom and develop the students of tomorrow.
