I came into education after spending some years in civil engineering. Volunteering in classrooms sparked a desire in me to engage with students and become a teacher, which I love! I use the 3D Printing in the classroom to help students observe the transformation of a 2D object into a 3D one; experiment with the effects of changing sizes for wheels or gears; and to see their own ideas transformed from a sketch into an object they can handle. 3D printing leads our students to trying new ideas at a fast rate, enabling them to learn from mistakes and try the next iteration quickly.
