ME3D: Teaching 3D Printing in Schools
Me3D‘s ethos is to make 3D printing simpler, faster and more accessible to a wider audience of technical and non technical users. They provide locally supported, opensource printing options and are dedicated to developing the 3D printing market here in Australia and abroad.
THE CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS
TEN ALPHAS was ask to create two videos to demonstrate the benefits of teaching 3D printing in schools with the aide of their Australian-made 3D printers, particularly in promoting STEM education.
We spoke to a Year 8 science class at Bulli High School who, thanks to a 3D Printing lab, are getting practical experience in 3D printing thanks to the enthusiasm of their science teacher, Steve Delaney.
We also visited Wilton Public School on the day their 3D Printing Lab, consisting of 5 new 3D printers for students to enjoy. The lab was gifted to the school as part of a program supported by South 32. We spoke to the teachers about how they hoped the students would benefit from the program.
The client was delighted with the final videos and believes they’ll do great work to promote ME3D printers to other schools.
