Mini Doc Cam 3D Printing

Brian Sobas

John Cardwell '21 turned his interest in 3D printing that he gained from a class project in Advanced Science Research and turned it into action to help the Breck community. As schools across the country implement distance and hybrid learning, access to technology tools was limited, including critical document cameras that allow teachers to project items on their desks to students who are tuning in online. When the innovation team asked for ideas on how to fill the shortage of doc cameras, John and Mr. Friesen found 3D printing prototypes from the Twitter_Teacher_Community member @jumekubo and modified them for Breck's use. John is using Breck’s 3D printers to produce the mini doc cams for teachers to use in their classrooms.
