Project Description

DePaul is a multisensory school for kids with dyslexia.

We teach at-risk students to read using the most creative methods possible, creating a one-of-a-kind classroom experience.

To help our teachers help our kids, we'd like to get a DesignCenter 2300. This cutting-edge 3-D printer and workspace will help us create posters, banners, awards, flashcards, and more, putting incredible resources into the hands of our teachers and kids. The software has 2,000 customizable, curriculum-enhancing templates and 5,000 graphics on the software.

This machine will help our teachers bring lessons to life for kids with special learning needs in a hands-on way: kids can visualize, create, and try out their designs, so they immediately know which concepts work and which don't. Kids with dyslexia are highly visual, so these tools will help engage them during lessons, expand their experiences, and teach them in the way they learn.

It's one thing to tell them the things they need to learn. It's another thing to show them. Will you help make that happen?
