3D Printing

Course DescrIptIon

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced cross-section of the object.

3D printing is one tool that helps students think about and see their designs as they work on them, from the first sketch to the finished product. Giving students opportunities to use their creativity can help them develop a love for original ideas and creativity that they can later use in business. 3D printing helps students show off their skills and gets them ready for college. They gain the confidence that lets them take hard classes, like those in the STEM fields. As students learn more and use their imaginations more, they become more creative and come up with their own 3D projects that can help others learn and solve problems.

Lessons benefit most pupils when teachers make learning interesting and enjoyable. Using 3D printing, teachers may create engaging lessons for complex theoretical concepts, taking students’ education off the screen and into the real world. Some pupils will view these activities as pure play, but they actually teach them important lessons in design, theory, and object manipulation. By incorporating modern tools into the classroom, participants can gain insight into the ways in which today’s pupils think and print together knowledge.

This course aims to combine 3D printing and robotics in classroom in order to create significant educational tools that make an important impact in teaching. These tools, except from their use in teaching several subjects, can also become very important in waking up students’ creativity and interest for the lesson!

Course Details


Professionals in the education sector (e.g., teachers, guidance counselors, principals, and administrators at elementary, middle, high, and vocational institutions) and non-governmental organization (NGO) staff.


Group discussions, hands-on exercises, cooperative lesson preparation, and other icebreakers are all part of the program. Training incorporates a variety of pedagogical approaches and methods, including project-based learning, problem-based learning, inquiry-based learning, experiential learning, brainstorming, group and peer debates, and more. Thereby, participants will be engaged in hands-on activities that will help them learn about and practice concepts like scientific inquiry and the engineering design process.
