Module 04
Virtuality to Physicality: 3D printing 

Fourth Fire

The Fourth Fire was originally given to the people by two prophets. They came as one. They told of the coming of the Light-skinned Race. One of the prophets said, ‘You will know the future of our people by the face of the Light-skinned Race wears. If they come wearing the face of brotherhood, then there will come a time of wonderful change for generations to come. They will bring new knowledge and articles that can be joined with the knowledge of this country. This new nation will be joined by two more so that four will form the mightiest nation of all. You will know the face of the brotherhood if the Light-skinned Race comes carrying no weapons, if they come bearing only their knowledge and a handshake.’

‘The other prophet said, “Beware if the Light-skinned Race comes wearing the face of death. You must be careful because the face of brotherhood and the face of death look very much alike. If they come carrying a weapon...beware. If they come in suffering...they could fool you. Their hearts may be filled with greed for the riches of this land. If they are indeed your brothers, let them prove it. Do not accept them in total trust. You shall know that the face they wear is the one of death if the rivers run with poison and fish become unfit to eat. You shall know them by these many things.’

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to describe how electricity works.

Students will be able to describe different professions that use electricity.

Students will be able to develop 3D models to be printed in to light fixtures.

STEM Activities

Students will work on translating a virtual artifact into a tangible product using 3D printing. The students will be presented a problem to solve through a team-based exercise. In this exercise, students will create a light fixture model for the dorm room from Module 02 and 3D print their model. Students also learn about electricity and how electricity works in this module.
