The virtue of 3D printing in an educational context is its versatility to be integrated into any subject area across any grade level, making it an ideal vehicle for STEAM-based learning. By leveraging the mobile makerspace concept with a 3D printer cart that travels from classroom to classroom, 3D printing extends beyond the domain of any one teacher or discipline and becomes a shared learning tool that is applicable and accessible to all. A mobile 3D printing cart can achieve the greatest reach and most tangible impact when supported by training for teachers and a clear articulation of how 3D printing connects organically to curriculum and learning goals. We will offer examples of this 3D printing model in action within a K-12 public school environment in order for educators to leave with ideas on how to more effectively bring 3D printing into their classrooms.
