3D Printing Collaboration Experiences in the Arts and Sciences

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Throughout the past year, each presenter has worked with another educator to bring 3D printing into their classroom for the first time. From this process, we have each learned important strategies along the way. We will share our experiences in guiding and mentoring other teachers new to 3D printing. The specifics our respective projects:  From Preschool birdhouses to Blanche Pope - diving in!!; Bringing 3D printing into a High School Fashion class; Design Thinking in Middle Grades Computer Science; and Exploring the Design, Modeling, and 3D Printing of Biochemical Molecules, will be discussed along with lessons learned and the follow-up support we will provide in moving forward to help other educators get their start in 3D printing.

A second part of the presentation involves our collaborative Pioneer Project creation of the UltibotD - an interactive desktop-sized Ultimaker Ultibot! We will share different approaches used with our students in designing and attaching accessories for the UltibotD.  Our collective experiences will illustrate the vast possibilities 3D printing can bring to education. We will engage and encourage attendees to join in the UltibotD Project so we can expand 3D printing's reach and make it more accessible to all.

Each presenter is a part of the Ultimaker Pioneer group. In this role we work to expand the understanding and application of 3D printing in education.  Sharing of our projects and the challenges we faced will hopefully encourage others to take their own stance in a similar approach.  We also believe that the Desktop Ultibot project is a great way to engage all types of classrooms and teachers level of experience.
