What is the benefit of using 3d printing in education?
Shape the next generation of dreamers and innovators by bringing ideas to life. 3D printing allows students to learn scientific principles by analyzing and inspecting physical objects and obtain a greater understanding of physics and design iterations.
Why 3D printing?
Physical representation has been proven to benefit a large portion of society in understanding and implementing new study materials. Some study materials are difficult to explain with words or text alone, so 3D printing provides a different medium for learning.
3D printed models provide a new way to interact with the study materials and different designs. This process unlocks a new stimulus for the brain and thus allows to expand innovation and creativity. Students learn to think outside the box and come up with new ideas.
Collaboration on 3D printing projects has proven to be extremely beneficial in acquiring the social skills necessary for professional development. Students can discuss, evaluate, and improve designs while collaborating on a project, as they will do in the future, their professional future.
