3D Printing & Digital Technologies Workshop

Integrating 3D printing in authentic cross curricular activities. 

Coming Soon in NZ and AU...

Places limited to 30 people

Having a 3D printer in your school is fabulous, but how can you use it within an integrated curriculum approach that is used to inspire, learn and share with others? 

Using Technology Better has partnered with 3D Printing systems to bring you a unique 3D printing day. Register 5 teachers and you'll get a free 3D printer!

Teachers everywhere are realising the potential of making cross curricula links and equipping their students with important digital learning skills. A 3D printer open up a world of authentic learning opportunities for your students.

During this one day training event, you will:

  • Unbox a 3D printer and learn how to set it up correctly for use in your school.  
  • Understand the hazards of working with 3D printer materials and how to operate your printer safely.
  • Discover how you can integrate 3D printing projects across the curriculum. 
  • Develop your students as creative, communicative, collaborative and critical thinkers.
  • Get hands on with and design a 3D model that can be printed.  
  • Explore aspects of the Digital Curriculum and develop a Learning Program using a range of low to high tech tools and digital technologies.  

Our motto is 'No more boring workshops!'
