Design Solutions includes three weeks of activities to illustrate how an engineer uses 3-D printing to prototype new designs. In that time, students learn about copyrights, patents, and trademark protection and how to use basic modeling software. Teams of two are then challenged to create solutions to three problems. These design solutions are then printed using 3-D printers. Students present their solutions to the class for review. Written to address ITEEA Standards for Technological Literacy, 3-D Printing: Design Solutions Curriculum enables teachers to address standards while students get the real-world experience of creating a design they are able to hold in their hands when finished.

Requires additional materials that are sold separately. Please see product specifications for details.
