Our First 3D Printing Workshop for Teachers

This July we hosted our first half-day workshop covering “Beyond the Basics” 3D printing topics for teachers. The hands-on, three-hour workshop covered material including “Printing Difficult Parts” and “Printer Debugging”, focusing on teaching techniques and tools to teachers so they can better interact and maintain their 3D printer and focus on teaching instead of fighting with technology. The workshop serves to compliment the other training, support, and education initiatives we are doing to build resources for STEM/STEAM educators in the greater Seattle area. Of the ten teachers who attended, all left feeling the workshop was a valuable experience.

The hands-on portion of the workshop involved
getting your hands dirty fixing a broken 3D printer.

We plan to offer the workshop again in the coming months, giving more teachers and students an opportunity to learn how to better use and maintain their 3D printer. If you are interested, please contact us at
