The use of 3D printing in the classroom helps brings engineering to life. By engaging in problem-based work, students gain applied knowledge that develops critical thinking skills as well as real-world experience. This session will explore how Palatine High School uses 3D printing as a critical component of our STEM-based curriculum. It will also explore several projects the school has undertaken including building functional combat robots.

This session will also outline how an accessible manufacturing method like 3D printing provides students the opportunity to go through the entire design process from start to finish. By printing functional parts, students can experiment with modern materials, test their designs, and gain experience that would have been not have possible without this technology.
