Enhancing NGSS with 3D Printing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Let’s take science instruction to the next level with 3D printing. We will share ways to infuse 3D printing into our 6th-8th grade science classes to increase the depths of learning aligned to NGSS. We’ll take you on the technological journey where our 7th graders are designing seeds and 8th graders are designing turbine blade prototypes using 123Design on their iPads. We’ll walk you through the process of helping students to print, test, modify, and re-print their designs. We’ll discuss how students analyzed the various aspects of their designs, creating the most effective prototypes based on the criteria and constraints. Leave with strategies to increase student engagement through the implementation of real-world tasks via the 3D printer.
