Autodesk Visits St. Raymond

Yesterday Autodesk visited St. Raymond in order to document the 4th and 8th grade Mechatronics classes and our after-school MakerSpace. The crew at Autodesk was interested in our program because we are currently the only elementary school in the country starting students in 4th grade on Tinkercad (a digital design tool made for education) and transitioning them to Fusion 360 (a professional engineering design platform) by the end of 8th grade. Our students shined in the spotlight. The documentary crew was impressed with how our Catholic school students are motivated to design things that help people and make the world a better place.

Look for the videos to be posted in late May to www.StRaymond.org
