Smith Receives 2014 Voya Unsung Heroes Award

Print PDF

Voya Unsung HeroesEach year, Voya selects 100 finalists to receive a $2,000 award, while three of them are selected as Top Winners to receive additional grants.

According to Voya's Unsung Heroes Website, Jennifer "Smith’s innovative teaching idea, 'Sages in 3D,' is designed to strengthen students’ understanding of all aspects of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts through hands-on experiences using 3D printers. The program will enable students to learn how to create and build prototypes and create designs using 3D printers. Students will improve their problem solving skills as they navigate the use of new, cutting edge technology. Students will also be encouraged to create manipulatives and models using the 3D printer as a way to increase not only their understanding of scientific concepts, but also their understanding of the potential of 3D printing. In order to help the middle school students identify practical applications for 3D printing, they will create manipulatives that the teachers and students will use throughout the district’s middle school classrooms. Through this project, students will directly see how technology can positively impact the future. They will also be encouraged and challenged to build creatively and critically."
