Description


Applications for 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) are rapidly expanding in a broad set of industries and the technology is being used as a complementary tool in many professions. As such the Australian education sector has seen accelerating uptake, with 3D printing being not only a field of learning itself but being used to enhance other fields of study by generating student engagement and drawing STEM concepts and digital literacy elements into the broader curriculum. However many teachers find themselves ill prepared for this transition and overwhelmed by the seeming complexity of introducing, maintaining and integrating this technology in the classroom. This course is short course is designed to clarify and practically demonstrate the most important concepts for educators to know and promote confidence through foundation knowledge of the technology. The course is run using our remote classroom and participants are able to actually run the 3D printers in our office using a browser and web cam. Links to the slideshow and video call will be sent to you prior to the event.
