K-12 Teachers: Advanced 3D Printing Workshop

March 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

This workshop will explore applications of 3D printing in different K-12 curricular areas.  The creation of 3D objects with included openings or cavities can assist students in visualization, planning and technological understanding.  Standards-oriented examples to be explored may be taken from:

  • Geometry
  • Chemistry
  • Mathematics
  • Geography
  • Physics
  • Elementary mechanics

Prior familiarity with the simple use of 3D printers is assumed, such as gained from the Basic 3D Printing Workshop offered by MSU St. Andrews.

This course includes the use of double-headed 3D printers, and of water-soluble filament for structural support and cavity filling.

Instructors: Robert Bubeck, Ph.D. and Tracy Zhang, Ph.D.

Limited to 10 participants. Lunch is provided.

Register now.
