Daemon3D Print A new initiative is being launched by that enables teachers to teach 3D printing and scanning. It is designed for both STEM and arts subject specialists in key stages 3 & 4.
The initiative is part of Daemon3D’s Makerspace services, which have been developed to provide curriculum support in the use of 3D printers, laser cutters, 3D scanners, robotics, and supporting technologies and skills. The company says it offers ‘inspirational’ lesson plans and story-based course materials for schools. This is intended to inspire teachers and increase their understanding of the technologies.
According to the company, the Makerspace course materials will prepare students in KS3 or KS4 for the next step in their education. Makerspace was created to empower teachers and help students discover their strengths, and reach their full potential.
Mr. Fayokun, an Engineering Lecturer at Croydon College said: “We have noticed a significant difference in the mindset and abilities of student applicants from schools who have integrated makerspace technology and concepts within their curricula at key stages 3 and 4.”
The late Nicola Stokes, who as Director at Daemon3D played a key role in the development of the new initiative said: “Too many schools are left unsupported with their makerspace technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters and scanners, meaning expensive kit is often left to gather dust in a corner.
“As part of our Makerspace service, we provide the technical support and educational tools needed for teachers to integrate their technology and deliver its full learning potential. We have seen this technology used by students in key stages 3 and 4, not just in STEM where you’d expect, but also in art and design, Techers are using our Makerspace package to increase students’ motivation and engagement through the use of our captivating lesson plans and storytelling themes.”
TCT Europe in 2022 issues 30.6 and 8.6 had a feature on 3D printing. There was also an interview with CREATE Education.
