3D design experiences keep students engaged and excited about learning, and this learning can be connected to a variety of content areas. Consider the embedded geometric principles in 3D design as students rotate, stretch and texture items within an x, y and z axis. As they research items to create authentic replicas, they are taking more than a cursory look at a structure, they are invested in the process of analysis.
With 3D printing, kids are positioned as creators, inventors, innovators and problem solvers. They will learn how 3D objects are prepared for 3D printing by making objects from scratch or modifying the existing ones.
