Scientists develop 3D printing program to teach materials science in high schools

A versatile technology, 3D printing has not only set the gears in motion for a manufacturing revolution but has also been a big help in promoting STEM education amongst younger generations.

The integration of 3D printers into the classroom has shown teachers and students alike practical applications for programming and CAD design, as well as the ins and outs of additive manufacturing technology. In Spain, for instance, a team of scientists from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) have developed an educational course that employs 3D printing technology to help teach material science to high schoolers.
