3D Printing: A New Catalyst for Learning
Printing in a new way:
Spatial intelligence is the ability to draw precise conclusions by observing a three-dimensional environment. This involves analyzing and interpreting the size, shape, movement and relationships between surrounding objects. It is also used when figuring out maps and taking part in any kind of construction or engineering project. According to scientific research, 3D designing enhances a student’s spatial intelligence. It not only triggers one’s imagination but also helps in bringing imaginations to life.
‘Learning by doing’ or experiential learning is a much-endorsed concept today and rightfully so. It encourages learning by doing as opposed to theoretical learning confined in a classroom. It follows the ideology that when learning becomes practical as opposed to theoretical, it enhances the learning capabilities of students, helping them gain a better understanding of core concepts. Similarly, 3D printing has the ability to create tangible activities through which students can learn important academic concepts such as buoyancy through a working motorboat and project motion through designing a 3D printed catapult.
Startups Promoting 3D Printing in Education Sector in India
3Dexter was started by 7 school friends who had substantial experience in technology, education and the skill sectors. They had been really fascinated by the potential of 3D Printing technology. The problem figured was the lack of awareness of 3D Printing Technology among the masses. There were numerous countries around the world which were promoting 3D Printing in education. India, on the other side was missing on this technology. Visit 3Dexter
