Around the world schools and universities are quickly adopting 3D printing as a tool for students to learn the principles of quickly designing and manufacturing a product. With 3D printing set to play an integral role in the future of industry and society, it is important for our future generation to be familiar and to have experienced this technology. 3D printing lends itself to many topics in education, such as 3D design, mathematics, physics, product development, and problem-solving.
The PHS 3D printing club is open to students from any grade level who want to learn about the whole process. They start by learning the basics of 3D Computer Aided Design software through a series of tutorials. When they have gained proficiency after producing their first print fresh out of the printer, they are free to let their imaginations run wild by designing and printing unique objects of their own creation. Our students can benefit from seeing their ideas come to life as they embrace this exciting technology which is rapidly growing in popularity.
