    My school district has a community group that gives classroom grants for innovative items. I've been received i-pads, Chromebooks, a smartboard, and Ollie coding spheros. We were just informed that they have received a HUGE donation and want to use it. YAY! Now I need innovative ideas please. They do not want items that the district should/could/would buy.
    Ideas please...

    Top of my list would have to be a 3D printer and supplies to use in art, STEM, community service projects, engineering principles, and the list goes on. That's been at the top of my list for a while, but apparently your group is better at fund raising than ours is. Good luck.

    A 3D printer was top of my list. Second on my list is an earthquake shaking table. You can teach design principles, earth sciences, STEM....

    The high school art teacher received some of those 3D pens. Awesomeness.

    Thinking maybe some seating like storage cubes or directors chairs.
    Or bike pedals for under desks?
