Banks County science and agriculture students are using technology this school year provided through a Tanger grant.

Banks County High School received the Tanger grant from the TangerKids Grant Program for 2020.

BCHS's application, "Eyes in the Future" project, provided two 3-D printers and supplies for the Learning Commons area.

The printer and materials have been put to use this year by several teachers and their classes, including: Chris Crump, agriculture teacher; Dean Goodwin, science teacher; Angie Bowen, Science teacher; and Chris Fuller technology Specialist.

Fuller assisted the classes with the setup and the process needed to create the projects using the 3-D printers.

Chris Crump's classes designed a bracket that the class needed to hold a metal sign that was created in the BCHS Ag metals department.

Dean Goodwin's Anatomy and Physiology class designed a skull, a hand and a finger to assist the students learning the skeletal system. In addition, the class used the printer to build a mechanical finger.

Angie Bowen's ninth grade science class focused on 3-Designs and basic use of the 3-printer.
