What is 3D printing?
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file.
3 Dexter Club primarily aims at preparing students for their future careers and teaching them valuable skills but these are not the only important aspects of implementing 3D printing in educational programs.
It serves as an extra revolutionizing tool to aid in many areas of education and provides teachers with new ways of getting their message across!
The theory concepts and practical applications relate to a range of subject areas including IT, art and design, science, engineering, robotics, mathematics and humanities.
For students to create, design and develop something that can then be printed in 3D not only engages them in a more purposeful way with their theory, but also gives them an insight into the skills and tools required to produce, manufacture and build. In terms of method, content and tools, this innovation addresses all of those.”
