Nearly 150 Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School seventh and eighth-grade students participated in designing, creating and using cookie cutters.
Three elective classes taught by Debby Thompson, Danita Anderson and Peggy Faria created designs and made 3-D printed cookie cutters that they proceeded to use to make frosted and decorated sugar cookies.
The project combined the games and puzzles, design and modeling and food and nutrition classes, Faria said.
“In Games and Puzzles the students learned how to make tessellated designs,” Faria said. “In Design and Modeling the students took those original designs and made 3-D printed cookie cutters. And, in my class the students took the cookie cutters and made sugar cookies from them.”
