3D PRINT YOUR OWN EDUCATION: A group of middle school and high school students in Cambridge, MA are the guinea pigs of an experimental program hoping to prove that students can solve the world’s biggest problems when armed with 3D printers, Arduino boards and group collaboration. Named the NuVu Studio, this tech-heavy program is garnering some media attention. Similar to "study abroad," students can attend NuVu for 3-9 months while temporarily "on leave" from their own school. Currently, the program has 28 students, with 20 coming from public and charter schools in the Cambridge area.
Not able to spend a few months in Cambridge? Might be worth flipping or clicking through this ebook on how to start using a 3D printer in the classroom, which will be available in July for $25.
