EDU 785 - 3D Printing

3 Credit Hours
This course presents a new form of publishing and manufacturing, 3D printing. 3D printing represents the ability to physically engage with the end product of a three-dimensional computer design. Because of the ability to make the virtual physical, 3D printing has numerous applications to a school setting. Whether a teacher wants to create scalable models of microscopic organisms or chemical elements to engage their students, or an instructor wants to improve a student’s spatial and visual skills through computer-aided design, a 3D printer represents an indispensable tool for a 21st century school. This course prepares candidates to learn about the affordances and constraints of a 3D printer as well as how to use a computer-aided design program to produce an end product via such a device in their P-12 schools/classrooms.
