The Makerbot is, as I type, making a barrel puzzle for a 7th grader.  Some upper school students wandered by and one declared, “That is the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life.  EVER.”  Earlier this morning, the Makerbot made an airplane designed by a 6th grader.   Yesterday, another 6th grader designed and printed a little racecar.

What’s a Makerbot?  Watch the video below, made by my coworker, for a quick description of this fun 3-D printer that is sparking the creativity of many of our middle schoolers.
