3D printers invite curiosity and inventive thinking
Thanks to the generosity of a local company, 3D Systems Corporation, two Cube 3D printers were recently donated to Marvin Ridge Middle School.
To initiate the use of the printers, Brita Mann, the media coordinator of MRMS offered a "design challenge" to students. The challenge was to use a CAD software program to create a 3D design of an object that a teacher could use in their classroom. Since the design challenge was issued in early May, the printers have been working non-stop to create student designs.
"This is a great example of authentic learning and individual problem solving, said Brita Mann. The design challenge and the 3D printers have invited curiosity and inventive thinking while also requiring students use logic, mathematics and analytic thinking to create their design." Students must think creatively to problem-solve and then plan and measure to make sure the design is workable.
