3D Printing & Robotics

Testimonial
Based on 3D Educational Services (3DES) demos at our NEMSTEM Conference last Spring, we decided to offer a summer introductory course in 3D printing, Robotics and its Applications to our Early College and current Associate degree students at North Shore Community College (STEM Starter Academy Summer Bridge program sponsored by Massachusetts Department of Higher Education). The 3DES team's mandate was to develop & teach a 6-week summer schedule class which included providing teaching materials, kits, in-class supervision with tests and grading. 3DES exceeded our expectations and brought so much more to the classroom to encourage our students. The students feedback was very positive and would lead to develop some other programs with them. robots
 
3DES allowed students to explore the subject material in a personal way with a high level of student-instructor interaction. The do-it-yourself robot kits, design of 3D robot parts, design of 3D robot parts by students, cheat-sheets (Robotics Vocabulary), quizzes and in-class assignments brought project-based learning full-circle!

The need for teaching “Maker Skills” in schools is increasingly evident based on research. To help build interest in STEM subjects and supplement the math and science skills that are crucial for building the future U.S. STEM workforce, schools are heavily investing in integrating maker activities into their prescribed curriculum frameworks as per Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). By bringing training in a hybrid model part online and part in the classroom, we will be able to persuade more students to engage in STEM fields by building the skills they will need to strengthen the nation’s future STEM talent pool.

At 3D Educational Services, Inc, we have developed a portfolio of programs towards developing maker skills by introducing spatial and critical thinking to assist problem solving. Some of our programs involve 3D modeling and its applications in art, science, computer technology in manufacturing (robotics) and digital fabrication technology. Our objective is to generate student’s interest in core STEM subjects by bringing curriculum and project-based learning materials to schools.

Our current targets are students in high schools and two and four year programs at colleges. We also facilitate our programs at private institutions interested in running technology related clubs!
