Wake Technical Community College obtained a 3D printing Grant, MODEL3D that provided for opportunities to explore integrating 3d Printing in exsisting Biology and Anatomy courses. Data, expetiences and examples of curriculum development and student experiences will be discussed.  The presentation will include many of the ideas and samples achieved over the years of development.  Various protein models of increasing complexity will be discussed and details will be provided for hands-on and will disclose how to generate them from various applications and how they were sliced and printed.  Particular focus will be on using low cost printers, like the Dremel3D40 and still achieve amazing results.  Various project resources will be provided and discussed to allow anyone to integrate 3D printing into Science courses.  All sites and features discussed are documented with QR codes and links to help the participants to quickly find resources of interest to them.  This is about sharing resources and getting 3D printing in the hands of science students to motivate and allow them to discover what hands on learning can do.  The presentation has many items that you can download and review.  Handout will be provided to embellish the discussion.
