The Lynbrook South Middle School's Library Media Center received a generous gift this year through a grant that was written through the collaborative efforts of Marion Street teacher Mrs. Schorr, her son Liam and Instructional Technology Coordinator Neil MacDermott. Three 3D printers were donated to the school and one has been placed in the Library Media Center.
This state-of-the-art printer will be a library resource and will enhance the S.T.E.M. program for South students. As a first collaborative effort, Library Media Specialist Mrs. Wasielesky worked with Liam in creating a sturdy “Lynbrook Owl” cookie cutter. The cookie cutter was then used by Home and Careers teacher Mrs. Rivlin and her students in their seventh grade culinary arts curriculum. The end result was a fun and tasty treat! The 3D printer will prove to be instrumental in assisting students in the design and creation of many projects in the future.
