Denali’s New Laser Cutter – Fundraising request 

Those of you who did not make it to the Spring Carnival may be interested to hear that the school’s new GlowForge laser cutter made its debut there. We were cutting tags, rulers, and calipers out of wood, leather, and acrylic. Everyone who saw it was really excited about the possibilities this new piece of equipment will enable for Denali’s Tinkering club and budding Makerspace.

One idea for the laser cutter that I discussed with Mr. Bock was having students in design classes start off by customizing, cutting, and assembling their own calipers.
 
I believe the experience of making their own custom tools would get the kids a lot more invested in the experience.
We’re also going to be using the laser cutter to make some of the props for the upcoming CrazyTown show.
 
Laser cutters are not inexpensive pieces of equipment, however – particularly when they come with all of the safety requirements for a machine that could be used inside a school. This one was purchased at a special pre-order price that significantly reduced the cost, over a year before it actually arrived. The up-front cost of $3440 was paid by me personally, with the theory that we could fund-raise to defray the cost when the cutter actually arrived. Well, that day has come.
 
Please let us know by emailing me (kerog777@gmail.com) if you would be willing to chip in to help pay for this exciting piece of equipment. Any amount would be appreciated. Note that the intent is that the laser cutter will be available to Denali families for personal as well as school projects. Unlike 3D printers, laser cutters make more sense as communally owned assets.
 
Thanks,
 
Keith Rogers
