New For 2017
St. Joseph Students began their graphic arts unit in an extra dimension this year. Middle School classes learned how to design in Sketchup and XYZ Maker, two popular 3d Printing Programs. After creating some designs, students had the option to take their creations to the next level using our 3d Printer.
Moving into this next decade, we recognize the enormous achievements being made in the world of 3d Printing. Our students are poised to use this technology in ways we never thought possible.
