Sachem East Uses Models to Study Extinction

Sachem East Uses Models to Study Extinction
Sachem High School East students in Daniel Egbert’s new Evolution Science elective recently worked cooperatively to use cutting-edge 3-D printers to create models of extinct, fossilized creatures.  

With the help of High School East librarian Jacque Wrightson, students learned how to use two programs, Thingiverse.com and Tinkercad.com, that enabled them to import and modify existing templates to create their models. Research on each species, as well as the mechanisms of fossil formation, were also studied as part of the project. Concluding the project, students presented their models and research findings to their class.
