Fayette County teacher wins 3D printer for Oak Grove

The technology teacher at Peachtree City’s Oak Grove Elementary has been awarded a free polymer 3D printer for the school.

Lori Walters was among 1,224 teachers chosen from among 3,487 worldwide applicants to receive the materials from Cincinnati-based GE Additive’s education program for primary and secondary schools. Walters’ application included creating a 3D design, joining an online design community and submitting objects she designed with her students as well as a plan for how she would use the printer in her classroom. The printer also comes with Polar Cloud software and lesson plans.

Oak Grove Principal Felecia Spicer praised Walters for “always thinking outside the box and doing great things for our students.”
