In this edition, we are trying to show how 3D printing helps in each level of schools such as elementary, primary and high school schools using 3D printing and design. Every day, we see the amazing things students can do when they nurture their ideas from an intuitive design interface and a supportive learning environment. We thought we’d share five major benefits of using 3D printing in education.
Innovation is the key when we talk about 3D printing technology. Instead of buying or consuming the creations of someone else they become inventors who can identify needs and create solutions for the community. One of the students in UTS has built the prototype of the university’s new building which has taken into consideration widely when it finalized.
Creation of Artistic Thoughts
3D printing will help to narrate the artistic view to the top. With 3D printing, students become designers and creators using cutting-edge technology to visualize and create their own imaginations. Forcibly mentioning here that the growth students will have in their spatial reasoning skills and 2D to 3D conversion understanding, which has been found to be a predictor of future success.
Engagement for all levels of kids
3D printing is still an upcoming technology that is not available to the public easily. However, day by day it has increased it’s important and needs to make available it’s resources handy. The kids who have an interest can make some “wow” factors but it also provides the promising urge for all other levels of kids for the engagement.
Taking Advantage of Digital Awareness
The existence of 3D printing in the classroom will allow the students to become a part of the growing online community dedicated to 3D printing. Specifically, with high engaged achievers who have the ability to like and comment on their peers’ designs. Inspiring insightful discussion about online activities and how to be a responsible digital citizen.
Social Awareness and Solutions
3D printing is a technology that medical crowd and building engineers are using to change the way they are working. Having the same technology available to the hands of the students and introduce them to some of the challenges facing your community. With this approach, they will learn empathy, teamwork, and problem-solving nature as you set them loose on a real-world problem. Don’t be surprised if they come up with solutions you hadn’t even imagined.
