### #Basketball Hoop Stand, All in One
This design is an attempt at an all-in-one basketball hoop stand that can be printed without support. It is approximately three inches (80 mm) tall.
The design arises from an instructional activity that uses a few basketball hoop stands. A regular stand requires extensive support and a raft and is not aesthetically appealing. So, I decided to use a few geometric ideas so that the hoop can be printed on the bed and then folds/rotates into place. The project turns out to be a very interesting STEM project!
Among the files are three versions with different patterns on the hoop board.
Have fun exercising and playing with math.
STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.
When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
