New Matter to Deliver MOD-t 3D Printers to Challenger Learning Centers

New Matter to Deliver MOD-t 3D Printers to Challenger Learning Centers

Most people alive today won’t ever get the chance to go to space – that’s just a fact. Most of us aren’t astronauts, or wealthy enough to catch a ride on a space tourism flight, and that’s okay. But today’s kids are getting the chance to experience space without ever leaving Earth, thanks to sophisticated […]

3D Printing in Sri Lanka Continues to Grow with Help from RCS2 Technologies

3D Printing in Sri Lanka Continues to Grow with Help from RCS2 Technologies

Although 3D printing isn’t new to Sri Lanka – the technology was introduced to the country a decade ago – it’s been slow to spread. Sri Lanka is home to a single 3D printer manufacturer, but while RCS2 Technologies may be only one company, they’ve done the work of many. We took a look at RCS2 […]

3D Printing Launches George Watson's College to Victory in ESA CanSat Competition

3D Printing Launches George Watson's College to Victory in ESA CanSat Competition

You’ve likely heard of CubeSats, but what about CanSats? The CubeSat’s smaller cousin is a satellite that, yes, fits in a can, and it’s used mostly for educational purposes. While, unlike CubeSats, a CanSat has never left the atmosphere, they’re great tools for teaching young people engineering and data-gathering skills. It’s not technically a satellite, […]

Middle School Students Design and 3D Print Container to Hold EIS Academy Experiments During Suborbital Rocket Launch

Middle School Students Design and 3D Print Container to Hold EIS Academy Experiments During Suborbital Rocket Launch

Classroom experiments are usually pretty interesting, and even fun…unless you’re dissecting a rat in biology class, of course (that was not a fun day for me, or the rat). A few months ago, Enterprise in Space (EIS), an international non-profit program of the National Space Society (NSS), launched the Print the Future competition, where university […]

STEM Students Use 3D Printing and Artificial Intelligence to Bring History to Life

STEM Students Use 3D Printing and Artificial Intelligence to Bring History to Life

It’s always more fun to learn about history when the lesson is interactive; at least I think so. We put on little skits in elementary school when we learned about the history of individual states (I remember using a bag of cotton balls to decorate the floor, as I had one of the southern states), and […]

3D Printing in STEM Education: Hacking the Raptor Reloaded to Create the Grab-Tor

When I was a kid, eons ago, I got a toy that was a plastic grabber on the end of a stick, controlled by squeezing or releasing a whole hand trigger in the handle. I was, as you can no doubt imagine, super cool. This grabber gave me the capacity to easily pick up, and […]

The 3Doodler Turns Four Years Old and Offers a Slew of New Kits for Kids and Adults

I recently moved into a new home and have slowly been replacing some of my ancient, ghastly-looking furniture with newer models (or at least new slipcovers). One thing I have too many of is chairs – I’m always on the lookout for cool-looking chairs, and I have several that I painted myself. My artistic talent […]

It seems like every morning when I turn on my favorite radio show, the DJs are talking about whatever random holiday it is. Forget the well-known ones, like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Memorial Day…I’m talking about the random ones. For instance, did you know that today, February 17th, is National Random Acts of Kindness Day? […]

35 Schools Awarded 3D Printers Thanks to Dremel's #LearnMakeGive Contest: Educators Tell Us What Winning Means for Their Students

When I was in middle school shop class, we engraved plastic keychains. There was no design to them other than settling on the brief text we wanted and ensuring we didn’t get our preteen fingers caught in the heavy machinery. Kids today are also able to create their own personalized keychains — but they do […]
