3D Printing

3D printing is becoming one of the fastest growing industries in the world today and is changing many industries, including construction, medical and space.

When learners get a chance to use their creative skills, they get to develop their critical thinking and creativity that can later be applied in business. Learners grow and explore their imaginations as they become more innovated to create their own unique 3D projects. 3D Printers open up new opportunities for presenting information to young students in an economical and efficient manner. They develop the confidence that allows them to pursue challenging courses such as those in STEAM fields. 3D printing offers students the ability to experience their projects from the digital modelling stage to actual creation of the physical object. This creates both excitement and a better understanding of the design process as they gain hands-on experience from conception to creation.

Leaners will use Tinkercad and Fusion 360 platform to design their projects and then print to the 3D printer.
