Teacher Testimonial by Nic Giannandrea - Justin Garza High School California
Today we are pleased to share the latest feedback from teachers who invested in learnbylayers. Nic has been using the curriculum for the past few years and has recently upgraded to the coding for kids 3D printing curriculum along with the addition of the Expert lesson pack. Here’s Nic’s thoughts below;
“I’ve been using the Learn By Layers curriculum for a few years now, and really can’t say enough great things about it. Before using Learn By Layers I had just cobbled together bits and pieces of lessons that I had created and found along the way. I always felt like I was just “getting by”. When I discovered Learn By Layers, I jumped in and haven’t looked back. The curriculum is comprehensive and ready to go.
In the beginning I used it as is, but have more recently been taking advantage of the freedom to edit the files to tweak the lessons to fit my classroom and teaching style. I started with the Fusion 360 full curriculum and only used the 3D printing lessons, when they offered the Onshape version, I purchased it and used everything that was offered to supplement my Digital 3D Design course.
Knowing the quality of the lessons, it was easy for me to make the decision to purchase the Coding for Kids 3D printing curriculum to use with my Intro to Tech course last year. The Coding lessons gave my students a nice easy introduction to coding along with the beginnings of 3D printing which has really given them a jump start for those that took my Digital 3D Design course this year.
As I look forward to expanding my courses to offer SLA in addition to FDM printing, I know Learn By Layers Expert curriculum set will be the go to resource to get myself and my students going.”
