This lesson plan combines all the key fundamentals of 3D printing into a single 60 minute workshop. The aim is to provide students with a complete overview of 3D printing technologies and the opportunities and limitations that come with them. The format of the workshop is based on 10 workstations, each consisting of an information poster, 3D printed demonstration models and challenges that encourage creative thinking.
The project can be undertaken as a roleplay scenario but we are encouraging teachers to actually implement one of the business plans created by students. Whether the funds created can pay for filament for your 3D printers or students exceed expectations and raise enough money to buy more 3D printers, we believe in the entrepreneurial skills of your students and so should you!
