Objectives
  • To feed an industry that is in high growth as is the 3DP of their “target groups”: students.
  • To improve educational transversal skills of the students through the use of 3D Printing.
  • To heightened concentration of pupils with Attention Deficit Disorder.
  • To improve 3DP skills of middle and secondary school teachers without technologic background as the best way to transfer this innovative knowle- dge to 21st century students.
  • To work in a cross curricular way among Departments in schools so that this technology is not confined to a single subject area.
  • To use ICT and 3DP to develop innovative teaching and learning practices.
  • To know first-hand the educational systems in every country participating in the project.
Activities
  • To develop a methodology for teachers about how to develop designs of didactic exercises suitable to be 3D printed.
  • To develop 30 3D printing exercises for improving skills of students on the different subjects of schools.
  • To develop a mobile tool for containing the 3D designs, including gathering the specifications and need of the platform from the teacher.
  • To connect the 3DP industry and the school community in Europe through the creation of a database with 3DP services providers and European.
  • To develop pilot tests in the countries involved in the project testing the exercises created by the teachers to their students in the classrooms.
Results
  • Guide for teachers about how to develop designs of didactic exercises suitable to be 3D printed.
  • Open Catalogue of 3D printing format exercises for improving skills of students on the different subjects of schools.
  • Innovative and intuitive software tool to contain the 3D printing kits of exercises including a guide for 3D printing focused on school education.
  • Networking software tool for connecting schools and 3D printing industry service providers.
  • Report of the use of 3D printing in European Schools using 3D4KIDS tools, exercises and methodology.
