From K-12 to major universities, 3D printing is the new rage. It has children and adults alike watching with awe as computer-generated images become tangible items right before their eyes. With 3D printing in education, Konica Minolta brings to your staff and students a renewed excitement in learning.
For K-12 schools and school districts, Konica Minolta has partnered with Dremel for 3D printers and MyStemKits for curricula. Dremel’s 3D printers and MyStemKits K-12 curricula combine engineering with 3D Printing technology. Designed to be used in conjunction with 3D printers, each MyStemKits lesson utilizes 3D design and printing technology. All curricula adhere to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core and other state standards. Students are engaged in relevant learning scenarios that encourage the essential skill of problem solving, collaboration, communication, clear and critical thinking as well as developing core academic knowledge. Konica Minolta offers several 3D education bundles, consisting of 3D printers and optional curriculum or professional development training for K-12 educators.
For Higher Education institutions, Dremel’s 3D printer is a great cost-effective, smaller capacity desktop printer to get your innovation center started. In addition to Dremel, 3D System’s higher-end ProJet series of printers bring revolutionary concept development to your innovation center, staff and students. The uses for 3D printing are limitless in Higher Education — from biology and pre-med students printing anatomical parts to engineering and graphic design students making prototypes.
