3D Printed Science and Math: Visualizations and Experiments

$195

with Network Learning Resources, Bangor Adult & Community Education

Calendar Oct 1, 2018

A 3D printer can be used to teach science and math in two ways: when a teacher creates an accurate 3D model of a concept for students to handle, or to design a “starter set” model that students can then alter and use as the basis for explorations. The instructors will impart ideas for developing appropriate content of concepts ranging from kindergarten to grad school and will teach participants to use the free and open source 3D modeling program OpenSCAD. The class assumes participants already know the basics of using a 3D printer, from the UGotClass “Introduction to 3D Printing” or equivalent experience. Recommended optional e-book: Horvath and Cameron, 3D Printed Science Projects (Apress, 2016).

To enroll in enrichment classes, particpants must be at least 18 years old and not enrolled in school.
