Teacher Kristin Donley, just named Teacher of the Year for the State of Colorado, often uses 3D to teach AP biology to her high school students.

3D helps her students to grasp complex and abstract subject like molecular structure, which she previously taught using flat drawings or models that were hard to see from the back of the room.

As part of this award Kristin, described by her students as "better than an encyclopedia and the Internet," will be traveling to the White House to meet with President Obama as part of the National Teacher of the Year Program.
