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. 3-D Printing: Design Solutions Curriculum includes a DVD and teacher’s guide. Requires 3-D Printing: Design Solutions Logbooks (sold separately) and 3-D printer (not included).
This curriculum is designed for three weeks of class time, and students begin by learning engineering and rapid prototype processes and seeing how the 3-D printer operates. Then, they work in teams to design their own battery-operated cars, using the 3-D printer to make parts to construct their vehicles. Finally, they see the results of their work on race day.
Written by an engineer, this classroom activity was developed to address several Next Generation Science Standards, specifically the Grades 6-9 Engineering Design performance expectations. Aside from helping instructors meet standards, the activity helps students experience real-world conditions such as peer review and working within a budget.
Includes a DVD, teacher’s guide, five Competition catalogs, and drill assemblies for cleaning axle holes. Requires 3-D printer (not included) and 3-D Printing: Vehicle Engineering Notebooks, (sold separately).
Setting up a professional-grade, four-color screen printing center is as easy as ordering this Deluxe Package. It features all the equipment needed for students to start printing their own four-color designs.
Introduce students to the customary system of linear measurement and the mathematical concepts students must know to measure accurately. Students learn fractions, link fractions to measurement, and then practice measuring in iterations of a unit. Math activities are sequential with each activity, building on the knowledge, understanding, and mastery of each preceding activity and concept.
Topics include adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions; reflexive, symmetric, and transitive mathematical properties; reading a ruler; taking a measurement; estimating distance; calculating area (in two- and three-dimensional objects); relationships among standard units of length; and much more.
Duration: 500 minutes (8.33 hours).
