Special Content: Repraps for Education
This is part of a series of posts about starting and facilitating a project-based 3D printer club at a local elementary school, with the ultimate goal of replicating the program at schools everywhere. We'll be posting as many details as possible, including lesson plans and supporting materials. For more information about the entire project, including a listing of posts related to it, please visit the 3D Printer Club for Schools
The 3D Printer CLub was announced to day at an all-school meeting to great interest and enthusiastic applause! The promotional video was shown, and many of the scenes with 3D printed objects got oohs and ahs. The director of the school came up to talk a bit about the club idea, and the kids seemed particularly excited about the “pay it forward” component, reacting with cheers and applause. By all measures, it was a great success!
