Hampton Bays Elementary School fourth graders used 3D printing technology in their STEM classes to design symmetrical snowflakes. The 152 individually designed works of art are displayed in the main hallway of the school. 

The students began the project by drawing snowflakes, which they uploaded into 3D design software. The digital 3D images were then printed out on the school’s 3D printer.   

“This lesson incorporated many 21st century skills, including designing, 3D rendering, downloading and emailing, all completed by the students,” said STEM lab teacher Jonathan DellaSperanza.
