Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Recommendations for teachers using this course, part of Getting Started with MakerBot 3D Printers.
If you're a teacher and you have a MakerBot in your classroom, there're a couple of ways to incorporate this course. First, if you are in charge of the printer, this course is a good foundation for you to learn how to effectively use the hardware. But if your students have hands on access to the MakerBot in the classroom, and they operate it themselves, you want to choose the parts of this course that are going to work for your students. Most can learn how to prepare a file for slicing, but some students, those with the more hands on approach like the robotics club, may find the whole course useful, so they can learn to troubleshoot problems on their own.
3D printers are a great way to bring stem courses to life, in a way that allows students to practice design-thinking, physically experience math concepts and have fun learning.
