Last Saturday night I had an opportunity to learn about some new things that are happening at LaCreole Middle School through Innovate Dallas. Students are using 3-D printers to make items, computers to make topographical maps, fly drones to designated places and other interesting and innovative projects. They are equipping a “steam machine” which they will use to teach and interest other Dallas students in innovating Dallas. These students were excited about learning and were working together to accomplish their goals. The students are learning about things that will serve them well after they leave the school system. They were problem solving by collaborating and evaluating their results. I hope Dallas will encourage and support them as I plan to do.
