Elevating the Process Over the Print/ Guiding K-12 Students in 3D Printing Challenges

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Design and engineer challenges can be daunting for youth, even without throwing 3D printing into the mix. Where do you start? This presentation shares effective ways to scaffold student explorations in 3D printing design challenges and project journeys. Building a collaborative, and exploratory class environment is key. When students share process stages and hurdles, a collaborative problem solving environment can be built. By highlighting the importance of process and workflow through journaling, labeled design iterations, print fail forensics, and low resolution model making, we can help students build perseverance and the drive to develop design iterations. We need to invite students to be open to seeing design inspiration everywhere (such as in the latch of a make-up case, the assembly design of a dog toy, and in the built space design solutions of ancient cultures). The result of such project journeys can be increased interest in STEM and STEAM careers, as well as increased student confidence in creativity and problem solving skills.
