So many ask what they should buy for school. While this list is not for all subjects, it could be a dream-list of what your student (or I) need for class.
Mechanical Pencils - Lots
Pencils (I Don't have a sharpener)
Notebook - Spiral or Composition Book (At least 3 just for me)
For 3D Design:
A Mouse, cordless, with a tilt/scroll wheel
Flash Drive - size doesn't matter
3D Printing Filament - Red, blue, yellow, white, black, orange, green, neon…
I have to buy this stuff, usually, so anything you decide you want to bring the first few days would be super sweet.
