The Good News: Your school district purchased a 3D printer for your classroom. The Bad News: Training wasn't included. 3D printing technology has great potential in educational environments as course subjects can be brought to life. This equips the students with practical (and very valuable) real-life experience.

To the greatest degree possible, we'll use free/open-source programs that run on multiple systems without making compromises. This will help maximize availability for you and your students, whether at school or at home. An inexpensive guidebook is recommended, and the apps/software are free. This class can be completed without access to a 3D printer and we'll explore methods to help you teach 3D printing to your students the same way. The syllabus describes the journey but know that there will be ample opportunity to adapt lessons that fit what you teach and the hardware you have available.

This course is applicable towards the STEM Teaching Certificate.
