ACTON — Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District received a new Teacher of the Year Equitable Innovation grant from the Los Angeles County Office of Education and its philanthropic arm, the Greater LA Education Foundation, to develop a maker lab with 3D printers.
The LA County Office of Education received nearly 200 grant applications from 45 school districts across the county. The County announced that 30 educator projects from 20 school districts are the first to receive the grants.
Acton-Agua Dulce Unified teachers Nicole Chun, Michelle VanOrnum and Alexa Lepp submitted the successful application.
“Ultimately our goal is to have a central makerspace at the Acton School campus at the District office to be shared by all three school sites,” Chun said.
They also hope to have more fabrication tools such as vacuum formers and laser cutters….
