A big key to a future full of technology is the idea of designing and rapid prototyping. In schools, materials such as clay and everyday items can be used for prototyping. However, with the technology and affordability of 3D printing and 3D design, educators can incorporate this new technology into their everyday classrooms and allow their student creative ideas and expressions to become a physical 3D item!
In this module, educators/facilitators will be introduced and experience the world of 3D design and printing! In addition, each participant will receive their own 3D printer that they will be able to work with. Educators/Facilitators will be guided by best classroom practices and integration of 3D design and printing. Through this thorough dive into 3D printing, educators will learn how to use this machine as an educational tool to transform learning.
