3DP & Kids: How And Why Your Students Should Be 3D Printing
3DP Technology Will Advance STE(A)M Education, Enable Teachers & Foster 21st C. Skills
Educators have to make demanding choices about which tools and technologies to use in the classroom. With the advent of 3D printing, teachers have difficult and interesting decisions to make. Why use 3D printers in the classroom? How to get access to 3D printers? How to identify and implement meaningful uses of 3D printing. Our expert panel will discuss these questions, spark and investigate other promising educational vectors, share field-tested concepts and solution-develop with audience input. Come join to network and connect with other innovative educators, build a knowledge base, identify resources to help your classroom get started, see 3D printing in action and learn about Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School (LREI).

This session is sponsored and hosted by:
Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School (LREI)
The Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School—also referred to as LREI—was founded by Elisabeth Irwin in 1921 in Manhattan, New York City as the Little Red School House, and is regarded as the city’s first progressive school. Created as a joint public-private educational experiment, the school tested principles of progressive education that had been advocated since the turn of the 20th century by John Dewey. The founders postulated that the lessons of progressive education could be applied successfully in the crowded, ethnically diverse public schools of the nation’s largest city. Today, LREI’s goal is to educate students to become independent thinkers and lifelong learners and to pursue academic excellence and individual achievement, in a context of respect for others and service to the community.
