Are you looking for ways to bring innovation and new technologies to your classroom instruction? Do you have creative, out-of-the-box students that are not fully engaged in classroom learning? Perhaps you want to get them involved in hands-on technical learning but are not sure how? NCCE has the solution for you! We have invited Table Top Inventing, a division of Windy Ridge Innovation, to bring a classroom MakerSpace to NCCE 2014. A MakerSpace brings together all the best elements of hands-on learning and exploring with all of your senses. Let you curiosity go wild with 3D printers, blinking lights, 10 minute micro-projects, robots, and more. Come play in the MakerSpace Garage; tinker, touch, try, explore, MAKE!
3D Printing Explained:
3D printing or Additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).
