I teach a class where students learn to use Rhino software and SolidWorks in order to make stickers, t-shirts, and 3D models for use with 3D printers. The idea is that students get to experience a variety of software packages, and CAM machines, build a 3d printer kit, and go through the process of engineering from idea to prototype product. We do fundraising by making stickers and apparel within the school, as well as 3D parts for land, underwater, and aerial robotics. I would present on how my teaching career progressed from a 1 trimester class into a full time robotics program over 2 years, and how 3D printing has been a part of that. I would share a couple of projects that students have completed, and talk about why this technology is relevant for students seeking relevant job skills.
