If the voices of my younger relatives are anything to go by, 3D printers are at the top of many children’s Christmas list this year. Some FFF 3D printers are certainly dropping in price to become comparative with the cost of a new games console, and another thing we’re seeing even more of is 3D printers being acquired by schools. Both of these factors are taken into account in the latest use cases from Winbo 3D Printers that undercuts the price of most other commercially available 3D printers, and has the support of Winbo’s very own specialist college at Guangdong Baiyun University.
Significant investment is being made into the future of the engineering industry, the results of which may fundamentally change the way the world’ factories work. With this in mind, Winbo have been applying their 3D printers to every stage of education, from pre-school through to college and higher education – integration in this manner that is expected to become the norm in years to come.
3D printing can take center stage in implementing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths (STEAM) to give students a more rounded and practical guide to the world.
3D printers are a popular STEAM tool as they encourage multi-discipilinary thinking. The technology can addresss mathematical calculations, engineering, problem solving and a finished object for purpose.
Some other objects that could be made as part of a project, either at school or at home, are toys, and objects with mechanical parts (such as the fan below) to figure out how things work.
