You can help Palms science students of Mr. Martinez by donating to the "3D printing into the future" DonorsChoose campaign.

Mr. Martinez explains:

"A 3D printer will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. Please help me give my students another 3D printer and get the supplies they need to use the 3D printer. Having an extra 3D printer will give every student the opportunity to print something of their own. This will also give them a glimpse of what tech life is like."

To date, Palms teachers have raised $59,900 using DonorsChoose campaigns.
