Otis Makers!

Exciting news from the Media Center!  We are using Makerbot technology!  Our Teacher Librarian, Connie Chapman, will be showing students how to use building and design software to create things on a Makerbot 3D printer.  We're the first elementary school in Alameda to use this new technology!  

Thanks to Ms. Chapman and Rob Westlund for making this happen.  Check it out!
