3D Literacy® Education
“I have been teaching 3D printing at the college level for six years. I assumed that I would be learning about assembling a 3D printer. However, in the process of assembling the 3D printer, I learned so much more about 3D printing than I could have ever imagined.”
“As a newbie to 3D printing, I wasn’t very confident going in. However, this workshop not only introduced me to 3D printing but provided the tools and encouragement I needed to build and operate my own. Each hour, students walk into my room amazed and can’t wait to design their own projects. Watching 25+ students stare in silence at the 3D printer is a pretty majestic thing to experience!”
This is the 4th 3D Literacy® workshop I have attended and the 2nd 3D printer that I have built. Everything that you have presented has been very useful in the classroom and has led directly to an increase in student enthusiasm for the subject. Rob is magnificent at presenting this material and his passion for this is contagious…
Great workshop! I recommend this class for anyone interested in 3D printing!!
Excellent, cutting edge technology that puts our students on the leading edge of innovation and creativity. I have built both the 3D printer and CNC mill in Open Source Classroom’s workshops, and WOW!!! The students (and every else that see’s the machines in action) are completely blown away!!!
Building a 3D printer from scratch in 2 days and spending an entire day learning operation and maintenance techniques is a phenomenal experience!
Building the printer was a great way to learn about 3D printers. Now our students are enthusiastic about learning and demanding printer time for their own projects. It’s really great to see that in the classroom! Excellent job by Rob and his staff. I couldn’t be happier with the class and my students LOVE IT!!!
