Both higher education institutions and K-12 schools are adopting 3D printing as a tool to enhance learning. For many teachers, 3D printing is still a new technology, and it can be a challenge to figure out how to integrate it into curriculum. 3D printers are learning tools, much like a calculator and a ruler. Rather than changing existing classroom material to focus on 3D printing, teachers are using 3D printers as a tool to enhance their class.
At Formlabs, we believe that sharing curriculum and resources is one of the best ways to help fellow educators understand how to integrate 3D printing into existing or new lessons. We reached out to our educator ambassadors and asked them to submit lesson plans that included aspects of 3D design and 3D printing.
