Course Description

This introductory course is designed for elementary and secondary school teachers especially those who teach art, technology education, science, and computer science as well as anyone with general interest in 3D printing. From initial set-up  to classroom integration, participants will learn how to integrate higher-order thinking skills in an existing course, where prototyped designs connect to real-world learning. Participants will learn how to operate and troubleshoot a 3D printer, and design engaging and practical hands-on projects that are suitable for use with elementary and secondary students in STEAM and PA Core-aligned curricula.3Dprinter-play

Participants will also learn how to find, download, remix, and print items ranging from jewelry to mechanical gears. They will use free 3D modeling CAD software to create, share, publish and print their own custom designs. Join us to transform your lesson plans and projects by enabling students to design and produce decorative items as well as engineered solutions to real-world problems.

All participants will receive an assembled Printrbot Play 3D printer and 3 graduate level professional development credits provided by the University of North Dakota.
