Why introduce 3D printing to schools?

  • 3D printing is an established industrial technology, which is now becoming more main stream and accessible
  • Equipping students to unders100_C2849tand and be able to use this technology will not only stimulate and engage them, but will also prepare them for a world where new opportunities using 3D printing are opening up all the time.
  • Prepare students for the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution
  • A 3D printer is a fantastic attraction to have on display at your school opendays and events
  • A great fundraising tool: print lithographs of your school or the students, personalised tags, personalised sports days medals… your students will have many more fantastic ideas about what they can print for raising funds

Let your students build a 3D printer for the school. threedy_oval-1 printer kits are the ideal project for STEM club students.

  • Students enjoy building the printer (& learn a lot in the process)
  • Your school acquires a high quality printer for continuing use across the curriculum.

“This is a fantastic project for the students to get some real hands-on engineering experience. With everything included, we could get on with making straight away, rather than hunting for tools and the correct size bolts.
Matt Fradley, Head of Physics, St. Francis’ College

 

Example of A Level Project Using THREEDY 3D Printer

A Level Physics Students from St Francis’ College built a THREEDY 3D Printer from kit and then used in in their Talent 2030 National Engineering Competition for Girls competition entry. They used THREEDY to print a prosthetic hand. Much more information is available on their website here.

Fantastic project! Well done to you all. Congratulations for your achievement in the competition!

 

Integrating 3D printing into the curriculum

SCIENCE
  • discover the properties of plastics
  • build molecular models
TECHNOLOGY
  • explore programming and electronics
ENGINEERING 
  • build your own 3D printer
  • create design prototypes and refine these
MATHEMATICS 
  • show why matrix transformations are useful
  • print out geometric shapes to explore areas and volumes

The threedy_oval-1 3D Printer is available in kit form, or assembled and ready to use ‘out of the box’. We offer leasing options and full support services. We are happy to discuss your individual requirements.
