Expert Makers teach Caldwell students about 3d Printing

“Making ” matters is a thing that might be passed down through generations.

Lately, members of the Montclair-based “maker” community HackNCraftNJ paid a visit to Trinity Academy in Caldwell, teaching local students about 3D layout and printing.

Visiting with HackNCraftNJ members included Montclair resident Frank Gibbons, Jon Bonesteel and Paul Modiano.

Technology teacher Kim Fiore and Trinity Academy’s computer organized the event.

“Trinity Academy’s 8th grade is learning to code for 3D printers using TinkerCAD,” Fiore said, describing the way the technology will be integrated to the classroom.
