STEAM Class Creates 3-D Iroquois Longhouses

The Fourth Grade STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Art/Mathematics) Innovators welcomed the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership Career and Technical Education Center’s graphic arts teacher Doug Russo to lead one of their programs. Using a computer application called Tinkercad, each student created a digital three-dimensional design of an Iroquois longhouse according to specific dimensions for the overall shape and size, and guidelines for other characteristics such as the roof, doors, and smoke holes. In addition, one student design from each class will be chosen and, using the 3-D printer, processed into a three-dimensional miniature plastic longhouse.
