3D-Print

3d_lab

3D-Print is a STEM based course designed to put a working 3D printer into your classroom. Students assemble the frame, hardware and electronics and 3D-print components as they build their own working 3D printer. The program is designed for grades 7th and up and is presented in a 16-week course taught and assembled in the school lab/shop and classroom. Once completed, the 3D printer can be used for other projects.
