Benefits of 3D printing for education
Preparing students for their future careers and teaching them valuable skills. These are not the only important aspects of implementing 3D printing in educational programs. It serves as an extra revolutionising tool to aid in many areas of education and provides teachers with new ways of getting their message across!
- Capture interest of students - Young students get bored with lots of text, making information visible helps but when you truly want to keep students interested, you print it in 3 dimensions.
- Stimulate interaction during class - By using a 3D printer, any class will instantly be transformed in an interactive learning experience. Print parts of a skeleton to use for a biology class or use it for prototyping in technique classes.
- Create tangible aids - Difficult concepts will not only be visible but also tangible. Anything you would normally draw out on the blackboard, can now be explained through models that students can touch and investigate from any angle.
- Hands-on learning through 3D models - Especially for art and technique classes, it is great to use the prototyping capabilities to make students’ creative ideas and designs come to live.
Leapfrog 3D Printers wants to develop for times to come. Not only our 3D printers should answer future needs. But the next generation should be able, and prepared for this as well. That is why our most advanced 3D printer, the Bolt, is tailored for these kind of needs as well.
The Bolt for education
The Bolt has an easy to use User Interface which can be accessed by a 7” touchscreen. This intuitive software can also be connected to any device with a browser and wifi. The printer itself is suited for the classroom as well, as it has a closed off build volume and a filter for clean air emission. Underneath the sleek exterior is a sturdy frame and high grade materials, for intensive use and reliability.
