With 3D printing machinery and equipment becoming more and more accessible, these benefits can easily be brought to students and teachers, making a major impact on day-to-day lesson planning and the potential offered to students. With applications across nearly every discipline of study, investments in 3D printing equipment aren’t limited to one classroom or department — they result in benefits to nearly every member of the school.
Just as 3D printing is useful in a broad cross-section of educational areas, it is also being found in a wider range of professional settings. Meaning, access to 3D printing technology in the classroom can help prepare students to enter the workforce. As students grow comfortable with 3D printing technology and become more aware of its potential, they become better able to use it to solve problems independently, boosting the professional choices available to them.
Whether found in primary schools, high schools or university settings, early access to 3D printing technology is an undeniable enhancement to education for any student. To learn more about the benefits of 3D printing in the classroom, read the slide presentation created by 3 Space below.
