In Schools: 3D Printing (3)

Signing Up for the “Printing in 3D” Marching Band
For those of you who are “all in” or just want to learn a bit more, here are a few more resources you can explore:

  • Read chapter seven of Gary Stager’s new book, Invent to Learn. Chapter seven is a valuable primer for the educational use of printing in 3D, one replete with ideas, obstacles, and solutions for moving printing in 3D forward within educational settings.
  • Also, scour the @3DPrinter site for news, ideas, and trends in this field.
  • Are you a visual learner? Check out this extremely informative infographic on 3D printing.

My sense of things is that this technology is not disbanding, like a tired, aging, small-town marching band. No, printing in 3D is going to grow, fill its ranks with energetic new recruits, begin quickstepping, and get bigger—drumming straight to the national competition of relevance—and beyond.
