FULLY FUNDED! Thank you!

January 06, 2020



We are ecstatic and humbled to announce that our team is now FULLY FUNDED due to your generous donations!


We cannot thank you enough for supporting us as we prepare to present our research at the national Association of Teacher Educators conference in February.  We could not have done this alone without a significant impact on our personal finances as college students.  We are grateful for you!


We truly do believe that sharing our work with educators and educational leaders from around the country will spark interest and action when utilizing innovative 3D design to support the needs of students with disabilities.  We also hope that other undergraduate researchers will be inspired to get more fully engaged in opportunities for research at their university.


Thank you for supporting us as undergraduate teacher researchers, and also in these opportunities which develop us as future teachers.


Atlantic City, here we come!

6 Days Left!

January 03, 2020

We have 6 days left in our PonyUp campaign and another $450 to raise!


We are so grateful for the support so far, and we need one final push to put us over our fundraising goal!


What an amazing opportunity we've been given to spread the word about how innovative methods like 3D printing can help support the needs of students with disabilities in the classroom setting.  Will you help us?  Share our story!


6 days, $450 dollars...WE CAN DO THIS!

50% Funded!

December 18, 2019

We are just over a week into our PonyUp campaign and excited to report that we are now 50% funded!  Our team is so grateful for the generosity of our colleagues, friends, and family.


Innovative ideas are spreading!  We were humbled to be featured on a recent story from Channel 6.  We believe strongly that every student, no matter the age or ability, should be provided the opportunity to be and feel successful in school!  This is why we have been so excited about our project being used to support students with disabilities in the classroom, and now the opportunity to share these ideas with other educators across the nation. 


THANK YOU for being a part of that!  $600 down on our $1,200 goal!

WOW! 25% funded already!

December 11, 2019

WOW!  We are in shock and so very appreciative of our early donors who have already put us over our 25% funding mark in just over 24 hours!  We can't thank you enough for being interested in our research and supportive of our travel to share this work with other educators.


Thank you so much, to each early donor!

We're LIVE!

December 10, 2019

And... we're LIVE!


We're excited to bring you a brief insight into our research from this past semester.  Going through the journey of customizing individualized assistive technology tools for students with disabilities has been quite the ride!  We have learned so much about 3D design and printing, collaborating with people in different professions, and finding unique and innovative ways to meet the needs of students in the classroom.


We are humbled and ecstatic to have the opportunity to present our research and our journey as undergraduate researchers at this year's ATE conference!  Every single dollar will be used to get us that much closer to sharing our work with educators across the nation.


THANK YOU for considering a donation!  We are so grateful for you!
