Northport VPK-8 School STEM Center received some very good news and a package in the mail that contained a brand new 3D printer from the First Robotics organization, ECKOCYCLE and Coca Cola. STEM Center instructor, Christine Nurse wrote and received the grant from will.i.am and Coca Cola whose mission is to inspire new things made in part from recycled materials. The grant was bestowed to help motivate students to do “something cool” for sustainable living and to help support a more sustainable environment using recycled materials. The twelve hundred dollar grant which purchased the 3D printer will help inspire Northport students to dig deeper, think harder and be more productive when researching and innovating. Great job Mrs. Nurse for reaching deep and going the extra mile to make sure that Northport VPK-8 students have the best materials. Pictured are students, Shea Ellsworth, Sebastian Hernandez and Jared Wilt helping Mrs. Nurse open the new 3D printer.
