Design Make Teach is a blog about MAKING in the classroom. MAKING is a process that engages students in thinking, making and sharing.
My name is Josh Ajima. I am a teacher. I believe that I can MAKE a difference.
In 2012, I helped plan a TEDx event. My TEDx wish was for a 3D printer for my school. When that wish didn’t magically come true, I decided to MAKE it happen and bought a 3D printer out of personal funds. I now DESIGN, MAKE and SHARE lessons on MAKING in the classroom.
This blog is part of my personal professional development and a model of the DESIGN, MAKE, SHARE process.
I give demos, presentations and workshops on 3D printing, technology integration and professional development. I am located in Northern Virginia.
Contact me if you are interested in helping schools with 3D printing and digital fabrication.
