Engineering Curriculum (Level II) – 3D Printing: Design, Print, Unlock Imagination
In this kit, students will embark on the study of 3D printing by examining an object print and exploring the printer’s movement. Using small toys, they will investigate the various shapes that comprise an object and break those shapes down into a 3D model. Given two separate engineering challenges, students will first create an object and promote it to the class in a class challenge, and then work in groups to create a class biome with both 3D prints and other materials. This jam-packed unit culminates by asking students to pitch their own project for printing.
