In the last few months, India has been coming on strong as they embrace additive manufacturing technology in several different ways. We have seen a couple of new desktop 3D printer manufacturers emerge in the second most populated country in the world. Additionally, there has been an increased adoption of 3D printing processes within various medical applications throughout the Asian nation.
Despite the fact that some countries may be lagging behind others when it comes to these new technologies, a strong influx of the technology within the educational realm can rather quick;y change all of this. 3D design and printing is the future. The market, as well as available opportunities, are only beginning to emerge. When children in middle school and high school are ready to enter the job market, we will have seen a substantial progression of the technology behind 3D printing itself, as well as the number of suitable applications for it.
Because of these opportunities, which are emerging due to additive manufacturing, df3d, a Bangalore, India based 3D printing design company, has announced this weekend that they have teamed with a startup also out of Bangalore, called Kidopia Ventures. Together they have just launched an initiative to bring up-and-coming 3D technologies to children and young adults via special educational courses.
The new venture, called Tutor3d will cater to children ages 8-16, teaching them the skills they will need to succeed in a field of 3D product design and printing. There are two levels of courses, each which have a duration of three months. Turtor3D will teach students all of the following:
- Learn modelling tools for 3D printing
- Learn design processes
- Incorporate 3D printing in your existing project
- Learn basic sciences with our models
- Explore mathematical modelling
- Define a custom curriculum for your school / college
As the introduction for the course states, “The greatest designers are ones who explore design at a young age”. What a better set of tool skillsets to provide a child with than the ability to understand the technologies which will pave the way towards the future. Further details on enrollment, as well as information on the courses themselves will be made available shortly on Tutor3d.com. Let’s hear your thoughts on the recent focus on education that we are witnessing within the 3D printing space, in the 3D printing for education forum on 3DPB.com.
