Thanks for sharing this! I did not know much about 3-D printing before viewing this presentation, but this really helped. I think it would be beneficial for my future school to purchase a 3-D printer, so my students have access to it. I never realized how many positives there were to using them in your classroom. I think it would be a great resource for my students to use and spark their interest into whatever topic we are learning about. I like that this 3D printer can be used in every subject, as well as teaching them 21st Century Skills. I think 3-D printers are so amazing, and I know my students would feel the same way. I look forward to searching for NSTA lesson plans that incorporate 3-D printers in your classroom.

Thank you for sharing this! I also know very little about 3-D printing. I know I have one available to me on campus (I am a preservice teacher) but I have been too scared to try it out! After reading this article, I am beginning to think that I should familiarize myself with ways to use a 3-printer because it might not be long before we see them in our elementary schools.
