Thanks for posting this forum.
I teach grades 7 & 8, I just received a Makerbot Replicator 2 from donorschoose.org and will begin using it with my students shortly. My class sizes range from 24 to 30, so doing individual projects is out of the question. Looking for ideas and suggestions for projects with the kiddos...
Is your environment one where the students would be able to keep something made in class?
Do they have access to the computers to do the design work or is this more, download an opensource .stl and print to show off?
Are there things in the classroom / school that are needed (or wanted) that can be made?
The first thing to hit my mind is pencil holders, not terribly exciting, but useful and printable.
Certainly would inspire further generations of 3d enthusiasts!
Also - would make my 7th grade classes look pretty pathetic by comparison!
Hi everyone i have recently set up a website www.3dprint.co.uk and we have a great idea and education plan we would like to try and introduce in schools. anyone recommend how i can go about getting it to teachers so they can look and see if it is right for the education sector?
It needs to be packaged into a curriculum.
That is the language of teachers.
