Educators – Learn to 3D Print in the New Year


We are excited to kick off the new year with our 3D Printing for Educators workshop as our first workshop offering of 2016!

Our 4-day workshop will take place Friday January 22 – Saturday January 23, and Friday January 29 – Saturday January 30 and we are looking for more educators to join us! The 3D Printing for Educators workshop will prepare formal and informal educators to get started with 3D printing in their learning space. We will cover the technical skills needed to use and maintain your 3D printer, the software used for 3D designing and printer control, as well as activities and ideas for integrating 3D printing into your program. Every participant in the workshop will receive a 3D Printing Starter Kit, which includes a Printrbot Simple 3D Printer and mini tool kit.

With the help of our 3D Assistance team here at the Tech Center, all workshop participants will have a reliable support group to help with any issues with their 3D Printer during the workshop. This amazing group has been recognized as the first off-site support provider for Printrbot by the company themselves! You can read more about that here: Announcing 3D Assistance

Again, this workshop is intended for educators who work in many learning spaces. Previous participants have included librarians & media specialists, K-12 classroom teachers, and afterschool program providers.
