3 D Shapes + 3 D Printing (3 D Printer Optional)

Grades: Other, 7th Grade, 4th Grade
Subjects: Science, STEAM, Math

Student Instructions

The Shape of the World is Designed in 3 D! Engineers, Inventors, Entrepreneurs are using 3 D Printing to solve problems. In this STEM Project Lesson/Activity you will explore what kind of Technology is needed to 3 D Print. How is Math connected to designing with a 3 D Printer? Why is the Design & Engineering process an important part of 3 D Printing? Where are they using 3 D printing in the Sciences & other Industries? FIRST Watch the 2 video s Look out for Key words such as: Mirroring, reflection, transformation, orientation, polyhedron, polygon, dimension, principle, model, ceramic, traditional, custom, assemble, scale, etc Second Use the Student Template Journal to show what you know. Every STEM discipline uses a (Design, Engineering, Journal-(whatever the name) Book to Document their ideas, research, progress, etc Designing & Researching with a 3 D Printer is NO Different. Use any or all of the seesaw Tools that you would like= photo note drawing upload etc This is for you, and what is best for your learning. Remember also to use draft for In Process And check Completed

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This Project can be done as just an understanding of how 3 D printing works, or as an introductory lesson on 3 D printing itself. If you do not have a 3 D Printer= have the student screenshot their CAD Design and uploaded as a response. If you have a 3 D Printer have them upload their design to the Slicer software to 3 D Priint. Another way to duplicate the process of slicer/3 D printer is a 3 D Doodler Pen, or Use a Glue Gun. (Just for Demo purposes.)
