3D PRINTING IN EDUCATION
3D PRINTING IN EDUCATION
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing which is cutting out / hollowing out a piece of metal or plastic with for instance a milling machine. 3D printing enables you to produce complex (functional) shapes using less material than traditional manufacturing methods.
All the participants will:
- Learn how to teach students about 3D printing,
- Learn how to teach educators about 3D printing
- Understand 3D printing as a support technology during teaching,
- Produce artefacts that aid learning,
- Create assistive technologies,
- Support outreach activities.
Objectives of the Course:
- Understanding how 3D printing is being applied across a number of domains, including design, manufacturing, and retailing.
- Acquiring the special capabilities of 3D printing such as customization, self-assembly, and the ability to print complex objects.
- Examining how individuals, including those in developing countries, are using this technology to create solutions to the problems they face.
- Gaining an overview of design thinking and using this framework to develop ideas that can be turned into objects.
- Obtaining a rich understanding of the capabilities of 3D printing and how to think about designing objects for this new technology.
- Identifying 3D Printing Programs
- Creating teachers team
- Working in groups cooperatively
- Designing Experimentation Projects
- Practicing 3D printer in the scope of the designed projects
- Teachers, trainers, educators, school administrators, etc.
