SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Middle School students are using open-source web tools to learn lessons in math, science and engineering.

The seventh grade students in Steve Rambone's technology classroom are involved in a supervised, 10-week project using Tinkercad, an online program that allows them to create, view and improve upon designs for 3-D model buildings, according to a statement from the district.

Over the course of the project, the students will use computers and a 3-D printer to bring the model buildings to life, according to the district.

The buildings will vary -- just as those in an actual village would -- and include homes, houses of worship and even fast food restaurants, the district said. The project aims to enhance each student's engineering knowledge.

“I like doing this because you can touch and feel what you created,” said Alexa Doyle, a student in Rambone's classroom. “It’s not two-dimensional and sometimes it’s just great to work with your hands on something.”
