3SPACE (3 Dimensional Solid Printing Active Classroom Experience) at James Madison University is the first 3D printing classroom in the country built for general education courses that are open to all students and departments at the university. The classroom features consumer level filament printers in a hands on environment with at most two students per printer, and since Fall of 2013, has hosted a wide variety of events, both for the university and for the general public. Our flagship course is a one credit general education science lab that has been taught every semester for the past four years. This presentation will outline some ways to teach such a course from a general scientific perspective. We will cover a variety of options, including 3D design programs (all free for educators and students), assignments, group projects, common complaints, and ways to make the class more or less `scientific'.
