Thank You and Welcome!!!

VMS takes it's first steps in three dimensional design

We are pleased to announce that thanks to a generous donation from the Oakland Education Foundation, Valley Middle School is the proud new owner of a Makerbot 3D printer.

The Makerbot Replicator 3D printer is an innovative new addition to VMS and a welcome addition to our new STEAM initiative.  The students at Valley Middle School now have access and exposure to CAD and drafting software that will help transform the amazing thoughts, ideas, inventions and tools in their heads into physical three dimensional creations. 

This webpage will help guide VMS's parents, students, and teachers in the science and art of 3D design and printing, and will hopefully generate an even greater enthusiasm for learning though three dimensional design.  This page will be dedicated to our 3D printing guidelines, lessons, links, and pictures that will be updated regularly.
