Otis-Bison received a grant for a 3D Printer!


During the Homecoming day festivities a few weeks ago there was another exciting thing happening at Otis-Bison...we were presented with a grant for a 3D Printer awarded by the Golden Belt Community Foundation!

Shortly after the Homecoming parade, a check was handed over to Mr. Highfill to be put towards the purchase. After some extensive research, the decision was made to purchase a LulzBot TAZ 6 3D Printer. LulzBot is made by Aleph Objects, Inc., a company based out of Colorado.

The printer arrived last week and was set up in our school library to give it a test run. The test print of the LulzBot line of printers is their ‘Rocktopus’ mascot and it printed great! We’ve put the printer away for a short time while the shop class works on a proper display case for it.

Teachers and students have already started thinking of projects they would like to make with the printer and we are very happy to have it here.

Thank you, Golden Belt Community Foundation!
