A fully resourced open-ended classroom project developed by our in-house team enabling students to explore the world of 3D printing with an object to print each week.

A series of stand-alone classroom activities have been developed to support the project.

The activities allow students to:

  • use their imagination
  • develop speaking and listening skills
  • develop descriptive and creative writing skills
  • be creative
  • develop research, evaluation and presentation skills
  • explore future careers
  • learn how real life problems are solved
  • develop their own solutions

The open-ended activities are designed to be cross-curricular, across of range of ages and levels, with weekly objects selected to cover a range of applications and subject areas.

Some objects may provide a platform for introducing or expanding on a specific topic area or as a springboard to a class project. Ideas for taking it further will be provided where applicable.

Resources include a comprehensive Teacher Guide with an overview of each activity and suggestions for how to deliver the activity in class.

PowerPoint Interactive Classroom Activity Slides and a set of Student Worksheets are also available to support the activities. These resources can be downloaded below.
