A School Maintenance of $10,250 Turns Into A $61 3D Printed Fix By a Pennsylvania Student

One of my favorite questions that I receive from others, is that of “Can 3D printers really be used in schools, and what are some examples?”. For most teachers, school administrators and parents, the idea of introducing 3D printers into the classroom environment is a frightening one. Most of these individuals know very little about the technology, and “fear of the unknown” causes them much anxiety. However, usually when I’m done reciting off a list of practical educational uses for the technology, their next question is, “Which one should we buy?”.

3D printing has really begun making an impact in schools all around the world, but it still remains far from being part of any national curricula. The average middle school or high school that you walk into today, will not have a 3D printer, but hopefully in a few years this will no longer be the case. With more interesting case studies popping up on a daily basis, and additional lesson plans being constructed around the printers themselves, it’s only a matter of time before the majority of schools begin integrating the technology into their classrooms.
