Pioneer Elementary students love being creative with their innovation projects, and keep finding new ways to use their tools to help in unexpected ways. Recently, students in Justin Towner’s innovation class used a 3D printer to create a model of a mouth for their peers in speech-language therapy.
Jordan Johannes, Pioneer’s Speech-Language Pathologist, uses the model mouth with a playdough tongue to show her students where their tongues should be placed while trying to pronounce certain sounds. Johannes’s students use the model and a mirror to practice while playing fun learning games during the day.
Check out some photos of students using the 3D model during a speech-language therapy session.
