    For non-Americans, what ages do these grades represent?

    Thanks for posting this forum.
    I teach grades 7 & 8, I just received a Makerbot Replicator 2 from donorschoose.org and will begin using it with my students shortly. My class sizes range from 24 to 30, so doing individual projects is out of the question. Looking for ideas and suggestions for projects with the kiddos...

    Is your environment one where the students would be able to keep something made in class?

    Do they have access to the computers to do the design work or is this more, download an opensource .stl and print to show off?

    Are there things in the classroom / school that are needed (or wanted) that can be made?
    The first thing to hit my mind is pencil holders, not terribly exciting, but useful and printable.

    Since you have one, maybe make more 3D printers...RepRap is the one with a very big community.

    How awesome would that be..."if you get an A in class this year, Ms. 7th grader, you get all the printable components for a 3d Printer."
    Certainly would inspire further generations of 3d enthusiasts!

    Also - would make my 7th grade classes look pretty pathetic by comparison!

    It needs to be packaged into a curriculum.
    That is the language of teachers.
